Formability Analysis of AA 5754

Experiments were carried out in a Macrodyne 900/600/300 Ton Triple –Acting Hydraulic Press. All aspects of system operation were under computer control using control software. Nine actuator loads and movements are under closed loop control. The experiments were performed on commercial A 15 C aluminum alloy sheet. The CAD Modeling was done using I–DEAS and Simulation was performed using DYNAFORM.
