Abstract:The hydroforming of sheet metals belongs to deep drawing processes, where the forming capacitiy is performed by a pressure medium. This process is especially suitable for parts with a non-rotationally symmetric geometry. Light-weight structures require particularly weight optimized geometries with a possibility to attach joints or secondary shape elements. Weight and strength optimised structures often use stringer elements to fulfill this requirement. They are used in flat plates or in single curved bodies. T… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
