A numerical investigation on the springback in air v-bending of aluminum 1050 A

Chokri Ben Salem; Walid Meslameni

Volume 11, Issue 2 , June 2022, , Pages 119-133


  Bending is a sheet forming operation in excess of the elasticity limit of the material. Currently, in the industry, bending operation is carried out by a successive test method in order to have the geometry of the part, which generates the operation quite long and too expensive. In fact, springback brings ...  Read More
