The effect of clamping sequence on dimensionalvariability in sheet metal assembly

Matuszyk, Timothy; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Rolfe, Bernard


Finite element (FE) modelling techniques have become a popular tool for exploring welding and clamping sequence dependence in sheet metal assemblies. In the current paper, the dimensional variability associated with different assembly clamping sequences is investigated with a FE contact modelling approach implemented in the commercial code Abaqus. A simplified channel section assembly consisting of a top hat and bottom plate is the case study investigated. Expected variation modes of bow and...[Show more]
