Abstract

A substantial increase in demand on the sheet metal part usage in aerospace and automotive industries is due to the increase in the sale of these products to ease the transportation. However, due to increase in the fuel prices and further environmental regulation had left no choice but to manufacture more fuel efficient and inexpensive vehicles. These heavy demands force researchers to think outside the box. There are many advanced manufacturing processes to produce optimized part are single and double point incremental forming, Reuleaux forming, hydroforming, explosive forming, electrically assisted manufacturing. In this project, a numerical study on rotational tube flaring process will be studied. Tube flaring is one of the most commonly used processes under tube forming. In this process, a conical tool contacts and forces the end of the tube while another end of the tube is fixed. This is called conventional flaring process. In contrast to this process, a tool rotational technique was utilized for this work. The rotation and the feed of the tool will be analyzed to have the best formability of the tool. The strain path and failure will be analyzed. The strain and thinning pattern will be discussed.
