An Algorithm for Optimal Blank Design for the Deep-Drawing of Aluminum Cups

In the deep drawing of cups, the earing defect is caused by planar anisotropy in the sheet and friction between the blank and punch/die. In the past, several incomplete research efforts have been directed toward predicting an optimal blank shape that will avoid the formation of ears. In this paper,...
