A Numerical Study on the Use of Drawbeads to Minimize the Earing Defect in Deep Drawing

friction between the blank and punch/die. In the past, several research efforts have been directed toward developing strategies for eliminating or mitigating the formation of ears. In this paper, we consider the concept of using drawbeads to minimize ear formation, thus overcoming the effects of ani...
