Analytic, Numerical, and Stochastic Comparison of Forming Force Modeling at Deep Drawing and Backward Extrusion on the Same Al 99.5 F7 Parts
In order to determine the forming force in deep drawing and backward extrusion processes (on Al 99.5F7 specimens) the analytical, numerical and stochastic modeling and analysis of forming force on the basis of the Box-Wilson’s multi factorial experimental designs by use of rotatable experimental design were carried out. The goal of the paper is to predict the force in these different forming processes giving identical parts by means of different modeling approaches. This study will seek to compare the results of these modeling solutions with experimental results serving to check the correction and the verification of analytic, stochastic and numerically obtained results. Also, the scope of the present paper is to evaluate different parameters affecting these processes and to examine some experimental procedures in laboratory scale for the listed material in order to give more useful information in numerical and stochastic computations and also, to define the correlation among the parameters of these processes in order to improve the existing one and to raise it to a higher techno economic level. The increasing tendency for industrial parts cost reduction, quality improvement, materials savings, and the shortening of design and manufacturing time is more focused on this way of analysis of processes. These investigations are a basis for general conclusions about the forming force and they have a direct application in the projecting of these processes, tools and forming systems.
