Buckling Analysis of Roll Forming Process using Finite element method

유한요소법을 이용한 롤포밍 공정에서의 버클링 해석

  • Published : 2003.09.01


In code roll forming processes, the sheet metal strip is gradually and successively bent into a desired profile. Occurrence of buckling is one of the major defects. Buckling may occur due to longitudinal stress and it is difficult to predict buckling behavior. In this study an analytical method for buckling behavior during roll forming is proposed. All numerical simulations are performed by finite element analysis. The behavior of buckling can be predicted with the simulation modeling of the finite element method.
