Advances in Materials Science and Engineering: Prediction of AISI 304 Stainless Steel Pipe Deformation by FEM Simulation

  • A. Di SchinoEmail author

The high quality standards required for metal forming call for compliance tests aimed to guarantee that such standards are met. Such tests often imply a waste of time and of economic resources. In particular, when stainless steel pipe forming is considered, many factors need to be taken into account. This paper analyzes the effect of different process parameters and geometrical constrains on the cold forming of austenitic stainless steel pipes by the finite element method (FEM). The results of such analysis will allow one to map the effect of different parameters.
