Forming-Limit Diagrams, Prediction Models, Sheet Metal Forming.


In this paper a comparative investigation of three mathematical models (Marciniak - Kuczynski model, Swift-Hill model and Sing-Rao model) as well as on an empirical model proposed by the North American Deep Drawing Research Group (NADDRG) has been carried out. The yield criterion proposed by Hill is used for the calculation of  the limit strains in connection with the Swift’s instability condition for diffuse necking and by using the Marciniak - Kuczynski analysis. The emphasis of this investigation is to consider these different

approaches to predicting the FLD. Experimental results has been carried out for low carbon steel sheets of drawing quality as well as rephosphorised,
TRIP and micro-alloyed steels. It was compared, which theoretical model showing good correlation with experiment, thus, which model is suitable for materials mentioned above.
