The deep drawing process is commonly used in the industry because its ability to produce parts with reduced weight and good mechanical properties at a high production rates. However, the elasto-plastic deformation mechanism of deep drawing is complex and difficult to analyse; this because there are many process parameters and variables involved that affect the quality of final products. Among these variables are the geometric parameters, which have been proved to have a great influence on the process. Theoretical and experimental analyses reported in the literature have been mainly focused on conventional cylindrical cup deep drawing. Few research works have dealt with the deep drawing analysis of non-cylindrical parts, particularly the influence of geometrical parameters on the deep drawing performance.

This paper presents an analysis of the effect of geometrical parameters on the allowable deep drawing height (DDH) of rectangular parts before fracture. The aim is to identify the influence of the main geometrical parameters on the DDH, Numerical analyses based on the Finite Element Method (FEM) were used to investigate the influence of geometrical parameters, such as the radii, the metal sheet thickness, and the aspect ratio, among others, on the DDH.
