Establishment of a Method for Formability Evaluation on Motorcycle Fuel Tank

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.14 No.2


The “Press map method” for simplicity and high speed and the “Press CAE analysis method” for depth and high accuracy were developed as tools for achieving a press formability of motorcycle fuel tanks. The methods enabling evaluation of press formability in the design stage were established. The effectiveness and reliability of the methods were verified by confirming the correlation of actual measurement data with the analysis result in applying the method to the actual models.
