Plastic-Bending of Adhesively Bonded Dissimilar Sheet Metals
In this paper, the effect of material characteristics on plastic forming of adhesively bonded dissimilar sheet metals was investigated by experiments and finite element method (FEM). The acrylic adhesive employed in the experiments has visco-plasticity characteristics with high ductility and strong strain-rate and temperature sensitivity in strength. Major results obtained are summarized as follows: (1) In the adhesively bonded dissimilar sheet metals, the gull-wing bend and the shear deformation of the adhesive layer are suppressed by the combination of the sheet metals when a bending inside sheet has high-tensile strength. (2) The gull-wing bend is suppressed by high-speed forming at a lower temperature as well as the same kind of sheet metals. (3) The calculated results using MSC Marc2010 are relatively good agreement with the experimental results.
