Simulated design and manufacturing of a circular press joint

Andersson, Mats LU ; Lilja, T and Pärletun, L G (1994) In Journal of Design and Manufacturing 4. p.245-252
Abstract
Interest in using the press-joining method for joining of thin sheets has increased during recent year, especially in the car industry. This is mostly a result of the economic advantages and the ability to join coated or unweldable sheets. With increased knowledge about those parameters that affect the press-joining process, the possibility of reducing or avoiding unwanted deviations in production is improving. In this paper the finite clement method is used to analyze circular press joint. Though some of the results are only partially complete, they are very promising and can be a basis for further work. The analysis shows that it is possible to use the finite element method to simulate the press-joining process. Reasonable computation... (More)

The analysis shows that it is possible to use the finite element method to simulate the press-joining process. Reasonable computation time is achieved by using a FE solver with an explicit iteration technique. The influences of material, tool conditioning and friction are discussed in the paper. (Less)
