Abstract:
Aluminum alloy sheets are used for automotive body-panels, but their small Young's modulus results in inferior shape-fixability than conventionally-applied steel sheets with similar strengths. Smaller radius of curvature, indicating better shape-fixability, is found at the center of a panel press-formed with higher blank holder force (BHF). Higher force can be applied for press-forming of alloy sheets with larger strain-hardening exponent (n value) induced by an increased addition of Mg. Recently-developed 5000 series alloy sheets containing 5.5 pct Mg and 0.3 pct Cu have an elongation over 33 pct at an ultimate tensile strength of 270 MPa and can be press-formed with better shape-fixability.
