Online Calculator for Forming Limit Diagrams

Thursday, January 27, 2005
 
Engineering Quality Solutions, Inc., Southfield, MI, has added an online FLCo calculator to its website, www.eqsgroup.com. FLCo values, based on sheetmetal thickness and n-value, can then be used to generate forming-limit diagrams for use in circle-grid strain analysis, tooling development and buyoff and formability problem solving.
