  • Patent number: 7640144
    Abstract: A method for simulating a hydroforming process includes modeling a virtual hydroforming die and a virtual tubular workpiece. The virtual workpiece is placed within the die after the die has been expanded. The die is then contracted to a finished size while the workpiece is deformed into a non-circular cross section in contact with the virtual die. The workpiece is subsequently pressurized to simulate production of a finished part.

  • Patent number: 7464011
    Abstract: A method for determining compensated addendum and binder surfaces as part of a springback compensated stamping die for producing a stamped part includes modeling of the existing addendum surface and binder surface of the stamping die. The addendum and binder surfaces are modified according to a number of compensatory surface displacements and in-plane rotations required for springback compensation of the finished stamped part. Following this modification, the stamped part may be separated from the addendum and binder without a loss of dimensional accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20080148312
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a screenplay-selectable video displaying method. According to a predetermined filename of a beginning plot, the plot is read and a video is to be played. During the playing process, the same screenplay is designed with plot files of different results. The selectable plot is used for reminding viewers to select screenplays. The massages of selections from the viewers are gathered and analyzed. A list of filenames corresponding to the screenplays stored in the head of the selectable beginning plot is retrieved and a filename of next plot is formed according to the list. A buffer plot following the plot is retrieved and the coded video content of the buffer plot is decoded and played. The buffer plot is used for saving time to retrieve next plot, by which the playing is made more fluent. Viewers can view different scenarios of a video by selecting different screenplays according to their preference.
