This chapter provides a detailed analysis of the deep drawing process. It begins by explaining that different areas of the workpiece are subjected to different types of forces and loads, equating to five deformation zones. After describing the various zones, it discusses the effect of key process parameters including the draw ratio, material properties, geometry, interface conditions, equipment operating speed, and tooling. It then walks through the steps involved in predicting stress, strain, and punch force using the slab method and finite element analysis and presents the results of simulations conducted to assess the influence of blank diameter, thickness, and holding force as well as strain-hardening and strength coefficients. It also discusses the cause of defects in deep drawn rectangular cups and presents the case study of a deep drawn rectangular cup made from an aluminum blank.
