Summary This paper discusses a computer-aided methodology for thickness strain analysis (TSA) of sheet metal stampings using geometry and strain information that is extracted from finite element analysis (FEA) results. The system utilises both FEA results and an ultrasonic gauge capability expert system to assist press shop personnel, providing them with capabilities such as optimum measurement point location and an estimate of gauge error. Key advantages of this enhanced TSA methodology are related to overall efficiency and accuracy gains.
