A Study on Solid and Shell Material Model in Stamping Simulation

Deep drawing is a forming process to make cylindrical components. Now, days for all kind of forming process up to maximum extent, we can optimize the process using FEA Simulation softwares. This will give an advantage of reduction in product development cost and product development time. FEA Simulation
software's are very helpful for the process people and R&D People. For Blank Optimization, Stages definition and Press tonnage calculation. For R&D, they can work with different materials with different sheet thickness to develop the robust design. In addition to that the marketing people can work on Quotation
purpose based on Blank development and Strip layout. Most of the Sheet metal simulation engineers will work on Shell Elements because of its lesser sheet thickness and it requires lesser time for simulation.
