Summary The development of ultra/advanced high strength steels (U/AHSS) has challenged traditional forming methods due to their higher strength and reduced formability. An alternative method is flexible roll forming, which allows the manufacture of sheet metal of high strength and limited ductility into complex and weight-optimized components. However, one major problem in flexible roll forming is the web-warping defect, which is the deviation in height of the web over the length of the profile. The authors’ previous work developed an analytical model to predict the magnitude of web-warping. That model was purely geometric and neglected the effect of material properties. This work develops an analytical solution for the prediction of web-warping that considers both geometric and material parameters. The model results were validated by comparison with numerical and experimental results. The impact of this new model will be the ability to provide a rapid initial design assessment before an intensive numerical analysis of flexible roll forming is conducted.
