enhanced Coulomb-model, measurement of pressure exponent, AutoForm, tribology in sheet metal forming


The complexity of sheet metal parts has reached a level, that without supporting process planning applications almost impossible to design the process planning. Because technology is sharpened to the limit the slightest disturbance in the production results in a waste product. The lubrication condition used during the sheet metal forming is crucial to the success of production. Therefore, the need to model the resulting tribological system as accurately as possible has become increasingly important. This paper purpose with the physically based measurement of the so-called enhanced Coulomb model material parameter used in AutoForm software and the analysis of its effect.
