Prediction of the properties of products of the blanking process is nowadays still mainly an empirical effort. The lack of fundamental knowledge of the process may cause lengthy process development, and obstructs process innovation. Consequently, a validated numerical model of the process would be of great value. In this paper, an elasto-plastic ®nite… CONTINUE READING
