Abstract

The steady increasing cost pressure and reduced lead time of a car body development while having high quality demands to produce vehicle parts made of modern sheet components in the press shop forces the automotive industry to shorter product and process development times. Therefore numerical simulation methods become more and more important to meet such requirements. The finite element analysis (FEA) meanwhile became a powerful calculation method to assure successful product and manufacturing development. Method is used to generate data of die contact surfaces in order to predict the forming and springback behavior of the single components within shorter given timeframes.
