The present paper is part of the study to develop the advanced computer aided manufacture (CAM) system called the changeable die system (CDS) that applies the cold-forming technique to produce curved thick metal plates with complex, three-dimensional geometry [Paik et al., 2009, “Development of the Changeable Die System for the Cold-Forming of Three-Dimensionally Curved Metal Plates,” The Lloyd's Register Educational Trust Research Centre of Excellence, Pusan National University, Korea]. This paper focuses on the procedure of predicting the spring-back characteristics using elastic-plastic large deflection finite element method, which is a key technical element within the framework of the CDS process. The validity of the procedure is confirmed by comparison with experimental results obtained by the CDS machine in the cold-forming process of curved steel plates.
