Evaluation of springback prediction capability using uniform pure bending
The aim of this study is to develop uniform pure bending as an objective test for determining the accuracy of springback prediction by employing different FEA techniques. A complete theoretical solution for the bending moment and change in sheet thickness is available only for uniform pure bending of perfectly plastic sheets. However, plastic hinging develops naturally in simulations of bending perfectly plastic sheets. We have developed a method to prevent plastic hinging and achieve uniform pu
