Abstract: Strong interest in producing ultra-light-weight, high corrosion-resistant, heat-proof and tougher advanced products has prompted potential development of titanium tailor-welded blanks (Ti-TWBs) to construct the critical parts of structures and panels in automotive applications and some other advanced industries. However, the capability to predict the forming behavior of the stamped TWBs without failure lags far behind the manufacturing technology. It is proven that the ductility for most of the titanium alloy sheets can be significantly improved at elevated temperatures. Nevertheless, such study of stress-strain behavior on the weldment of Ti-TWBs has not been fully investigated. This paper aims to analyze the forming behavior of the Ti-TWBs at different elevated temperatures using a finite element analysis. The distinctive mechanical properties of the base metals and weldment for the forming simulations will be acquired experimentally. Finally, it is found that, due to the increase of ductility, the forming behavior of Ti-TWBs will not be considerably improved unless the forming temperature is kept between 500oC and 600oC.

Abstract: In the present investigation, the forming behaviour of adhesive bonded sheets with the pre-generated infinite defects in the adhesive layer is studied. The infinite defects are generated with different orientations like longitudinal, transverse and at an angle of 45°. The base sheet materials used are deep drawing quality steel and SS 316L sheets, and two part epoxy adhesive is used for bonding the base sheet materials. The formability is quantified by monitoring the load-extension behaviour, and limit strain, evaluated through tensile tests and in-plane plane strain (IPPS) formability tests. It is observed that there is a significant decrease in formability because of the presence of infinite defects in the adhesive layer. While comparing the formability of adhesive bonded blanks with respect to different orientations, transversely oriented defect shows more reduction than 45° and longitudinal cases. There is not much difference between the transversely oriented and 45° oriented infinite defects in tensile tests, whereas in the IPPS formability test results, there is no considerable difference between 45° and longitudinally oriented defect.
