Redesign of a Complicated Component of Auto Body Based on the Properties of TWBs
With a synthetic study on the mechanical properties and deformability of TWBs, and an advanced mechanical analysis of weld-line movement, the theoretic basis for the whole forming and redesign of a complicated component of auto body (body side-inner panel) was achieved. Then a preliminary redesign was conducted with the selection and collocation of parent metal, the layout of the welding position, and the design of integral forming drawing taken into consideration. Thereafter, by simulation forming and parametric optimization, the redesign of the component was completed and its stamping forming technology was greatly improved.
