More and more automobile companies are going for weight reduction of their vehicles for fuel economy and pollution control. The objective of the present study is to determine the effect of blank temperature on forming behaviour of sheets and damage factor of aluminium sheet alloys of 6061 and 7075 at elevated temperatures. Although the aluminium alloys have high-strength to weight ratio and good corrosion resistance, the low formability of aluminium sheets limits their use in some products with complex shapes, such as automotive body parts. The elevated forming process is intended to overcome this problem. An insight into such a study will throw light on the different temperatures required by the above materials when they are made into TWBs. Using ANSYS a series of simulations were carried out in the present investigation on the formability behaviour of deep drawing of aluminium alloys in the temperature range 200-500°C.
