Towards the automation of the die spotting process: Contact blue pattern decryption
(Elsevier Ltd., 2020)
Automotive die spotting is one of the most complex and least standardized processes in the tool making process. A spotting expert identifies local contact areas through a blue-paste pattern and the die/sheet contact is ...
A coupled 3D wear and fatigue numerical procedure: Application to fretting problems in ultra-high strength steel wires
(Elsevier Ltd., 2021)
This work presents a coupled 3D wear and fatigue numerical procedure for fretting problems in ultra-high strength steel wires that combines Archard’s wear equation with the Smith–Watson–Topper parameter to predict crack ...
The Interaction between the Sheet/Tool Surface Texture and the Friction/Galling Behaviour on Aluminium Deep Drawing Operations
The increasing demands for lightweight design in the transport industry have led to an extensive use of lightweight materials such as aluminium alloys. The forming of aluminium sheets however presents significant challenges ...
