Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Stringer sheets are bifurcated parts that possess, compared to flat sheet metal parts, a higher stiffness due to their higher geometrical moment of inertia. Currently, the common way of forming spatially curved stringer sheets is hydroforming. This article shows the feasibility of forming stringer sheets by using solid tools with short process times, which is more relevant for the industrial application. A die-bending process with a slot in the punch for the stringer is investigated. Since buckling of the stringer is one of the occurring failure modes, depending on the stringer height, an analytical estimation of the critical stringer height is carried out while considering the bending angle, bending radius and sheet thickness. The subsequent numerical and experimental investigations show a good agreement with the analytical estimation. Finally, a stiffness test is carried out with stringer sheets of different stringer heights. The result of this test underlines the motivation of forming buckling-free stringer sheets with stringers as high as possible. The normalized stiffness increases with rising stringer height until buckling occurs. At this point the stiffness values begin to fall with growing stringer height.
