A Sensitivity Analysis on the Springback Behavior of the Unconstrained Bending Problem
Sheet metal forming software is commonly used in the automotive and sheet metal sectors to support the design stage. However, the ability of the currently available software to accurately predict springback is limited. A sensitivity analysis of the springback behavior of a simple product is performed to gain more knowledge into the various factors contributing to the predictability of springback. The sensitivity analysis comprises both numerical and physical aspects and results are reported in this article.
