Description: Springback results from the elastic part of the forming operation. Removing the bending moment used to produce the angle α2 the sheet springs back by an angle Δα. Springback is a function of yield stress, strain hardening and pre-straining. It can be reduced or compensated for by proper use of material and technology. This interactive simulation schematically shows the springback penomenon. Move the sliders to alter the various parameters and click on "Test" button to view the resultant springback.
