Excessive coil deformation can complicate normal handling of a wound or rolled coil, cause difficulties in mass production, and introduce undesirable variations in the subsequent manufacturing processes. Four critical factors for coil deformation have been identified, i.e., radial stiffness of the coil material, winding tension, stiffness of the core which supports the coil, and lubrication. In this paper, we advance the understanding of coil deformation by developing an equivalent material model based on the internal stress distribution obtained from a two-dimensional winding-analysis model. The proposed material model is then implemented in a multi-layer finite element model to study the coil deformation under gravitational loading. This proposed framework can quantify the contribution of each factor in the coil deformation and thereby provide more scientific base in the engineering design process. The approach is used to analyze the deformation of laminate sheet coils.
