Physical Drawbead Design and Modeling with ABAQUS/Isight

This paper focus on the design approach of mapping the equivalent bead to the physical bead geometry. In principle, the physical character and geometry of equivalent bead is represented as restraining force (N/mm) and a line (bead center line). During draw development, the iterations are performed to conclude the combination of restraining force that obtains the desired strain state of a given panel. The objective of physical bead design to determine a bead geometry that has the capacity to generate the same force as specified in 2D plane strain condition. The software package ABAQUS/CAE/Isight with python script is utilized as primary tool in this study. In the approach, the bead geometry is sketched and parameterized in ABAQUS/CAE and optimized with Isight to finalize the bead geometry.
