Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Net-shape forming enables companies to increase competitiveness by reducing the number of operations and associated costs. The required accuracy, however, is an obstacle in getting processes, and especially tooling, right first time. To overcome this problem, an efficient off-line tool design procedure is necessary. The proposed procedure accounts for two major sources of error in cold-formed components arising from die deflection and component springback. It is based on a hybrid physical modelling/finite element approach. Physical modelling provides information on load distribution at the material/die interface which is then used as a load-boundary condition in the two separate finite element simulations of die deflection and component springback - both elastic phenomena. The die compensation part is carried out in a CAD environment. This paper describes and discusses the proposed procedure.
