Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

FE simulation of laser-aided stamping

Peng, X. and Balendra, R. and Qin, Y. and Lu, X. (2004) FE simulation of laser-aided stamping. Journal of Materials Processing Technology, 145. pp. 256-263. ISSN 0924-0136

Laser-aided stamping of copper work-material was simulated using the FE code ABAQUS, by which temperature distributions and the stamping forces under different heating conditions were investigated. The simulation results showed that laser-heating can provide a satisfactory distribution of temperature at the shear-zone of the work-material, which will substantially reduce the maximum stamping force and enable stamping with larger aspect ratios. A high heating rate may also be achievable so that the desired stamping-temperature can be reached within a heating period that can match the requirement of industrial applications.
