Abstract

Structured sheet metals are becoming more and more popular for using in lightweight constructions. In the present research three different schemes to produce structured sheet from aluminum AW6061-T6, namely stretch forming (two type of die) and stamping using elastomer, were investigated. Evaluation criteria for application of these schemes were proposed. Numerical models for each technological scheme with some assumptions were developed in the software package DEFORMTM. The dimensions of sheet were limited only by the thickness (1 mm) and for numerical simulation a little part of the sheet was used. Influence of FE-mesh (type and number of elements) on calculation accuracy was estimated. Also such characteristics as power parameters of process, fields of internal stress and geometry of resulting profile were estimated.
