Pro-Chain - Efficient Statistical Analysis of Process Chains Applied to a Forming-to-Crash Example

In this paper, novel methods for the PRO-CHAIN strategy are presented, and their application is discussed for an example. PRO-CHAIN enables statistical analysis and multi-objective robust design- parameter optimization of forming processes as well as forming-to-crash process chains. The strategy is built upon several software tools which allow for an efficient sensitivity, stability and robustness analysis, even for simulation results on highly resolved grids. Concrete results are presented for a ZStE340 metal blank of a B-pillar.
