This article discusses a set of experimental and computational studies aimed at understanding the effect of various processing parameters on the extent of burr and other defect formation during sheet edge-shearing and slitting processes. It describes the development of experimentally validated finite-element models for analyzing the classes of shearing processes. The article also discusses the use of microstructural characterization with stereology to render three-dimensional volumetric parameters. It concludes with information on the numerical simulation of an edge-shearing process, along with sensitivity studies with respect to process and tool parameters.
