Numerical analysis and simulation (FEM) of a double deep drawing sink height Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents the results of a research project obtained using theoretical, numerical and experimental methods, in order to solve the problems encountered when increasing the height of a double deep drawing sink, and the proposed solution. The analysis considers: Manufacturer limitations (eg. tool modifications, steel material changes etc.), the process parameters observed and measured during the deep drawing operation of the failure part, the theoretical fundamentals of sheet metal forming and the analysis and simulation with a computer program based in the finite element method (FEM). The analysis and simulation results using a FEM program showed that, it is possible the height increment of the sink, utilizing a variable blankholder force, to an 11%25 above from the fabricated parts before the application of the proposed solution but 5%25 less than the required final product height.
