Abstract: To overcome low formability and springback problems in forming aluminium panel parts, a novel process of hot stamping is introduced in this paper. It is good plasticity and low deformation resistance when aluminum alloys under high temperature, which makes it possible to form complex parts such as B pillars. Finite element method is used to analysis the thinning regions in this part, it can be acquired that the quality of the part in hot stamping is better than in cold stamping.

Abstract: To research the problem of part’s dimensional accuracy error easily occurred in hot press forming, a B-Pillar on one domestic car was set as example, the dimensional of the actual part and its model diagram were compared by means of ATOS optical scanner. By recording the the process parameters used in practical production, the effect trend of three key process parameters on part’s dimensional accuracy was summarized, process parameters suitable for practical production were gained.

Abstract: In order to improve the efficiency of the calculation of the whole car side impact finite element model,simplified model often used in research of B-pillar in passenger car. It is critical to establish a high accuracy simplified model in a short time. The relationship between the energy absorption of body parts and the calculation accuracy of simplified model was analyzed,and the result can be used as a guide for the establishment of simplified model.

Abstract: Friction coefficient is an important parameter in sheet metal forming especially in hot forming. Friction condition not only influences material flow but also affects the thermal conductivity between blank and tools. In this study, varied friction coefficient is introduced to the hot forming simulation of B-pillar made of ultra high strength steel sheet 22MnB5. Three curves of friction coefficient vs. temperature are investigated. All of the heat transferred by conductivity, radiation and convection are considered in the simulation. And the temperature-dependent material and process parameters are supplied. It is demonstrated that the coupling effect among the strength and hardness of the metals, the properties of the oxide film covering blank surface and viscosity of the lubrication oil leads to the fact that the friction coefficient changes with temperature instead of constant during hot forming. The friction coefficient curve characterized by increasing first then decreasing gives the best simulation results and then is followed by the one which is characterized by decreasing first then increasing. The constant friction coefficient is the last.

Abstract: To solve the problem of part’s section thinning easily occurred in hot press forming, the numerical simulation model of hot press forming process of a B-Pillar on one domestic car was established, the forming process was simulated by PAM-STAMP 2G software, the area thinning on the part were forecasted. Then through modifying the corner radius and the tiny shape of the part, the thinning level lightened greatly, the effect was certificated by new simulation results and practical production.

Abstract: In recent years, with the trend of auto body lightweight, more and more auto manufacturers pay attention to warm-hot forming of laser tailor weld blank (LTWB). In this article, choosing Audi Q5 B-pillar as the study object provided by Benchmark 2008 and using the stamping specific software Autoform, the effects of blank holder force (BHF) and drawbead on the formability of B-pillar are studied in different forming tempreture and put forward the reverse compensation method to control the weld line offset and the reverse compensation quantity is quantized, which has great significance to direct the industrial production, determine the process parameters of warm-hot forming and reduce the times of trying dies.

Abstract: The paper studied B-pillar crashworthiness in the car side impact by modifying CAD model of a domestic car. MDB is builded according to ECER95 regulation and a car side impact model is established finally. And the paper made simulation analysis and solve for the model based on HyperMesh and LS-DYNA. According to simulation analysis, focusing on the insufficient crashworthiness of B-Pillar two schemes were put forward: one was to change the B-pillar thickness; The other was to change the B-pillar materials.The results show that simply increase thickness is not feasible and changing the steel to aluminum alloy is feasible which greatly improved crashworthiness.
