V-Band Clamps are manufactured using a cold roll forming process consisting of six passes which plastically deform an initially flat strip by bending to produce the band’s V-section. In this paper a new method of validating numerically predicted plastic deformation in a cold formed metal strip is presented. Tensile testing of samples of the band’s material was used to obtain a direct link between plastic strain and work hardness of this particular material. Using this correlation, the… CONTINUE READING
