EWI-FC launched a Joint Industry Project (JIP) with Honda R&D, KTH Parts, Shiloh Industries and The Ohio State University. The project team has substantial experience in forming, lubrication, process modeling, and failure predictions with these emerging materials, including aluminum 5xxx alloys and advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) – 780/980/1180 tensile strength materials. The project team is applying experimental and numerical methods, and related knowledge to “develop practical formability evaluation methodology and reliable failure criteria of the commonly used sheet metals.”

Success in achieving this objective will enable the EWI-FC to:

  • Evaluate the material formability in major forming modes (i.e., bending, stretching, drawing, and hole-flanging)
  • Predict the failures of materials in different forming modes
  • Establish material formability and failure models with selected materials.

At the conclusion of this project, it is expected that the participating industry partners will gain the following benefits:

  • Detailed information of testing methods, tooling design, and procedures, along with the evaluated material data, and
  • Reliable failure criteria in stamping of the selected sheet materials

To learn more about ongoing projects at EWI-FC, please contact Hyunok Kim, Technical Director at EWI-FC at hkim@ewi.org or 614.688.5239.
