When designing components, you have thousands of types and grades of materials available. Generally, decisions are based on each material's strength, mass, corrosion resistance, dent resistance, and mechanical properties. Mechanical properties are a significant factor defining the formability of materials.

The mechanical properties of your sheet metal should be the biggest driver of your material selection. Mechanical properties also define your probability of forming parts with...

Hot forming sheet metal components is becoming common and expected with today's Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS). AHSS is the fastest growing set of steel grades in automotive applications. AHSS offers enhanced formability at higher strength. Cold forming AHSS can lead to severe and unpredictable springback. Hot forming relieves residual stresses in the formed workpiece which solves the springback problem. The quenching operation leads to a martensitic microstructure possessing ultra-...

In the Oscar-winning movie Whiplash, a talented young drummer and a respected music teacher engage in a battle of wills and wits. The simplest lesson of this dark, controversial film is practice makes perfect. Whether you play the drums or march in the drum line, you know that practice pays off. You store the steps and beats in your memory, leaving you free to perfect your performance.

Testing sheet metal to determine its properties is not unlike what musicians and athletes go through...
