AutoForm Training Seminars
Material Behavior in Sheet Metal Forming
USA: Training Seminars 2013
Trainings to be scheduled upon request. Please contact your local AutoForm office to schedule a session, or send us your filled in request for quotation.
This course covers the basics of material behavior of steel, high-strength steel, ultra-high-strength steel and aluminum in sheet metal forming processes. Issues such as material behavior under a variety of forming conditions and properties which influence this behavior are discussed. Topics are illustrated with practical applications.
The introduction of mechanical properties and material behavior contains:
- Flow curve; mechanical properties, approximation & extrapolations (Ludwick, Swift, Voce)
- Forming Limit Diagram; grid analysis, FLC creation
- Material laws and yield locus
- Steel, high-strength steel, ultra-high-strength steel;
DP (Dual Phase), CP (Complex Phase), Trip (Transformation Induced Plasticity) and Ms (Martensite)
The main focus of the course is on interpretation - deriving and using material data in order to understand and interpret material behavior. The preparation of material data required for forming simulations is also covered.
This two-day course is intended for part designers and tool makers in the automotive industry, as well as for staff carrying out forming simulations.
Training seminars are held at AutoForm’s offices in the USA, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Japan and Korea. Upon request, the seminars can also be held at customer sites. Please contact your AutoForm team to schedule a session.
