Bending is one of the processes frequently applied during manufacture of aluminium components. The bending operation involves springback, which is defined as elastic recovery of the part during unloading. In manufacturing industry, it is still a practical problem to predict the final geometry of the part after springback and to design appropriate tooling in order to compensate for springback. In this paper, commercially available finite-element analysis (FEA) software is used to analyse bending and springback of different aluminium materials of different thickness. The amount of springback, the total equivalent plastic strains and the equivalent von Mises stresses are presented. The FEA results are compared with empirical data.


Finite element analysis of bending operation of aluminum profiles
Penekli, Ufuk; Darendeliler, Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2008)
Bending process is an important forming process in most industrial fields. Springback and cross-section distortion are commonly faced problems in bending process. Springback behavior of closed and open section beams changes with different parameters such as cross-section type, cross-section dimensions, bend radius and bend angle. For closed sections like tube, the dominating problem is cross-section distortion. The thickness of the tube at intrados (inner surface of tube being in contact with die) increases...
Finite element analysis of shearing processes
Isbir, S.; Darendeliler, Haluk; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan (null; 2006-12-01)
Shearing of sheet metal is extensively used in manufacturing industry. It is a highly non-linear process and involves complex mechanisms such as crack initiation and propagation, and deliberate fracture of the material for obtaining the desired geometry. Finite element method can be used for the design of shearing process. However, most of the general purpose commercial finite element analysis programs do not provide ready-to-use facilities to simulate shearing. In this paper, finite element simulation of s...
Ultrasonic (C-scan) and microscopic evaluation of resin transfer molded epoxy composite plates
KAŞ, Y. ONUR; Kaynak, Cevdet (Elsevier BV, 2005-02-01)
One of the main problem in resin transfer molding (RTM) is the formation of microvoids decreasing the mechanical performance of the components. In this study, an ultrasonic inspection method (C-scan) was used to evaluate these microvoids. Composite sample plates were produced by a small laboratory size RTM machine injecting epoxy resin into a flat mold filled with woven carbon fiber layers. In C-scan analysis a certain value of energy loss (dB loss) was selected as the 'operator set level' and further dB lo...

Polymer-based products are widely used as load-carrying components in different structural applications due to the ease of manufacture, installation, and long lifetime properties. In mining and tunnelling industry, fast-setting, thin polymer-based products are in demand as an underground support liner. Researchers have agreed that the time-dependent material properties of underground support liners have significance for short to long term applications. Although some creep tests were performed in literature,...
Nickel and Gold Coatings of Germanium and Kovar Substrates
Cetin, Yasin; ERDOĞAN, METEHAN; Demirci, Gokhan; Karakaya, İshak (2016-06-02)
The integration of germanium to other materials such as Kovar® (registered trademark of Carpenter Technology Corporation), an Fe-Ni-Co alloy, by soldering requires a surface preparation due to poor wetting characteristics of germanium. Coating (metallization) by successive electroplating of 3 mm wide nickel and gold frames well adhered to the outer edge of a circular germanium window and kovar body was applied to attain successful joining of germanium to kovar. Surface cleaning of parts to be joined or plat...
