Determination of Strain in Incremental Sheet Forming Process


Article Preview

A simplified method to determine the strain distribution during incremental forming of a cone is proposed in this paper. Because of the symmetry of the deformed part, the strain can be derived using the results obtained from a limited number of consecutive tool contours instead of going through the whole process. Comparisons made between the measured and simulated results show that the proposed method can be applied to determine the strain encountered in such kind of incremental forming process where axi-symmetric parts are formed.
