Material Flow Curve Influence on Macroscopic Residual Stresses in the Workpiece Bottom in High-Pressure Sheet Metal Forming


Article Preview

The further development of innovative forming processes like sheet metal hydroforming is only possible with the help of detailed knowledge about the workpiece properties and their formation depending on the process strategy. Up to now, the knowledge about the formation of macroscopic residual stresses in high-pressure sheet metal forming (HBU), regarding the influence of the sheet material properties, is still insufficient. The characteristics of the specific forming procedure HBU lead to specific stress and strain gradients in the sheet cross-section, and therefore lead to a characteristic distribution of the induced macroscopic residual stresses, particularly in the workpiece bottom zone. This paper decribes the investigations on the influence of the sheet material flow curve on the macroscopic residual stress distribution in the workpiece bottom.
