Convolute Cut-Edge Design with a New Anisotropic Yield Function for Earless Target Cup in a Circular Cup Drawing
A convolute cut-edge design is performed using FEM (Finite Element Method) for a single step cup drawing operation in order to produce an earless cup profile. Mini-die drawing based on a circular blank shape is initially carried out in order to verify the earing prediction of the Yld2004 anisotropic model (Barlat et al. ) for a body stock material. Realistic cup geometry is then employed to design a non-circular convolute edge shape. An iterative procedure based on finite element method is initially used to design a convolute shape for an earless target cup height. A constant strain method is suggested to obtain a new convolute prediction for the next iteration from the current solution. It is proven that Yld2004 model is accurate to predict the anisotropy of the material.
