Sheet metal forming processes, especially deep drawing processes give diverse results by various materials. Extreme differences occur between steel sheets and aluminum sheets. The main causes of these differences are variances in micro- and macroscopic material properties, such as anisotropy. In this study, the behavior of two distinct materials, steel and aluminum alloy, during an axisymmetrical cup drawing operation has been studied numerically. For this purpose, finite element (FE) simulations of a simple cup drawing process, which was studied in the benchmarks of the NUMISHEET 2002 have been conducted using a commercial dynamic-explicit FE-analysis package. The materials analyzed have been 6111-T4 aluminum alloy and mild steel graded as deep drawing quality. Basic process parameters, which are the blank holding force and the lubrication condition, have been varied to obtain a "successful" product and the process windows for these two materials have been compared and investigated. Thickness distributions in the blank, force requirements for the process and product quality have been used for the basis of comparison. The results are also compared with an analytical model developed by Ramaekers.

Investigation of the deep drawability of steel and aluminum sheets by finite element simulation
Sönmez, Çağlar; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2005)
Sheet metal forming processes, especially deep drawing processes give diverse results by various materials. Extreme differences occur between steel sheets and aluminum sheets. The main causes of this variance are anisotropy, elastic modulus and microscopic material properties. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the deep drawing properties and also to develop suitable process parameters for aluminum and steel sheets by finite element simulation. In the simulation, the commercial dynamic-explicit code PAM-...
Numerical simulation of various cross sectional workpieces using conventional deep drawing and hydroforming technologies
Onder, Erkan; TEKKAYA, AHMET ERMAN (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
This study focuses on the determination of optimum sheet metal forming process and process parameters for various cross sectional workpieces by comparing the numerical results of high-pressure sheet metal forming, hydro-mechanical deep drawing (DD) and conventional DD simulations. Within the range of each cross section, depth, characteristic dimensions ratio and fillet radius have been altered systematically. Steel of types St14 and DC04 have been used as the specimen material in the numerical analyses and ...
Comparison of Wax Appearance Temperatures of Crude Oils by Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Thermomicroscopy and Viscometry
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (1996-07-01)
This paper presents the results of an experimental study of the determination of wax appearance temperatures (WAT) of 15 crude oils by differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.), thermomicroscopy and viscometry. Good agreement is obtained among the three techniques for crude oils having a significant precipitation rate. Considering the great diversity of crude oils, it is concluded that d.s.c. and thermomicroscopy should be used together for a better understanding of the determination of WAT of crude oils.
Comparison of Different Constitutive Models in Sheet Metal Forming
Ucan, Meric; Darendeliler, Haluk (2013-04-24)
The effects of different constitutive models in sheet metal forming are investigated by considering the cylindrical and square cup drawing and V-bending processes. Numerical analyses are performed by employing eight different constitutive models. These are elastic plastic constitutive model with isotropic hardening, elastic plastic constitutive model with kinematic hardening, elastic plastic constitutive model with combined hardening, power law isotropic plasticity, piecewise linear isotropic plasticity, th...
Investigation of the effects of equal channel angular extrusion on light weight alloys
Karpuz, Pınar; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Karaman, İbrahim; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2012)
Severe plastic deformation methods are of great interest in industrial forming applications, as they give rise to significant refinement in microstructures and improvements in mechanical and physical properties. In the “Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE)”, which is the most common method for production of ultrafine grained bulk samples, very high plastic strains are introduced into the bulk material without any change in cross section. This study is composed of two main parts. Part I focuses on the plas...
