摘要: 针对薄壁金属管材在塑性纯弯曲后横截面扁化变形难于准确预测的难题,运用四点纯弯曲试验,获得截面残留扁化量的实测数据,进而发现截面最大扁化量出现在垂直于轴向弯曲中性层的方向。随后基于图像处理技术与数据拟合方法,探索出可采用椭圆函数对截面轮廓进行近似数学描述。运用经典卸载理论构建薄壁管材纯弯曲后截面最大残留扁化量的预测模型。通过理论值与试验数据的比对证明了模型的正确性,并获得最大残留扁化量随弯曲半径、壁厚的变化关系。该理论模型能为提高薄壁管材塑性弯曲过程的成形质量提供有效途径。

Abstract: Cross-sectional ovalization usually occurs when thin-walled steel tube is subjected to large plastic bending. It is hard to predict the residual deformation of the cross-section when the external bending moment is removed. So four-point pure bending experiments involving eight stainless steel specimens with different geometric parameters under different bending radii are carried out to periodically monitor the cross-sectional flattening along the circular direction. From the experimental results it is observed that the appearance of the maximum residual flattening is usually found in the direction normal to the neutral surface. Then using the digital image processing methods the points on the outer edge in the image of the ovalised cross-section are fitted by the elliptic equation which is validated to be best in fitting prices. Finally a rational model for predicting the maximal residual section flattening of the thin-walled circular steel tube after pure bending is presented using the classic unloading rule. The new model is validated by experimental datum. The results show that the model agrees well with the experiments with less than 10% error. And based on the analytical results, the relationships between the residual flattening and the bending radius as well as the wall thickness are also revealed. This new model is expected to find its potential application in thin-walled steel tube bending operation.
