Automotive Applications: Automotive Formability Tests

The following images help illustrate the automotive applications of our research.

Examples of Automotive Formability Studies

  • FLDs vs Composition and Processing
  • Strain Rate Sensivity and Formability
  • Damage and Fracture during Forming
  • Surface Roughness and Formability
  • FLD and Fracture Limit Prediction
  • Bending, Deep Drawing, Stretch Flanging Characteristics
  • Determination of Coefficient of Friction during Forming
  • Formability Tests
  • Bending of Welded Aluminium Tubes
  • Tube Hydroforming
