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.

Abstract: Nowadays, there are several grades of sheet metal used in the automotive industry. Highstrength steel sheets, particularly, have been widely used in order to reduce the weight of vehicles,which is strongly related to their fuel consumption rate. However, it is generally known that thestrength of the sheets, which is relatively higher than that of the conventional carbon steel sheets,results in their low formability. In this work, the limiting drawing ratio and forming behavior of sheetmetal that is conventionally used for automobile parts were evaluated by test using cylindrical cupwith hole. The feasibility to use limiting cup height for comparing formability of sheet metal was alsoincluded in the investigation. The sheet materials used in the experiments are aluminium, cold rolledsteel, high strength steel and advanced high strength steel. The process parameters for this study weredie corner radius and blank holder force. Workpiece materials were prepared with a circular shapeand with a diameter of 80 millimetres. In the center of the circular workpiece, a 12-millimetrediameter hole was drilled to observe the formability of each of the materials. The advantage of usingan initial blank with a hole in the center by the cylindrical cup drawing test is that the cup does notfail from changes of the thickness of material near the punch radius at the bottom of the cup. Thelimiting cup height of the investigated materials were evaluated by test using the cylindrical cup withhole. The results show that the limiting cup height values have a relationship to the limiting drawingratio values of the investigated materials. Testing using cylindrical cup with hole by evaluating thelimiting cup height value is feasible for comparing the formability of sheet metals.
