Effect of bending on formability limits

  title={Effect of bending on formability limits},
  author={Alejandro Mart{\'i}nez L{\'o}pez and A. H. Boogaard},
In order to fulfill new environmental regulations to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), new grades of Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) have been replacing conventional steels in vehicle’s body structures. These changes are intended to reduce the estimated total weight, and increase fuel efficiency of vehicles. Although, the implementation of these materials brought new challenges to predict the material response under sheet metal operations. One of the techniques widely used to… CONTINUE READING
