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
    (Nakazima, Marciniak)
  • Material laws and yield locus
    (Hill, Barlat)
  • Steel, high-strength steel, ultra-high-strength steel;
    DP (Dual Phase), CP (Complex Phase), Trip (Transformation Induced Plasticity) and Ms (Martensite)
  • Aluminum

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.

Audience

This three-day course is intended for part designers and tool makers in the automotive industry, as well as for staff carrying out forming simulations.
