Abstract

FE simulation was conducted to investigate the failure of an impact backward can-extrusion process for the forming of a cartridge case, based on which different process-design concepts were developed and tested. The results showed that measure in either preform design or forming sequence design, or tool design, may be taken to effect the process without failure; the 'optimal' engineering-solution is that feasible technologically and economically.
