I am a Mechanical engineer and tooling engineer for a major tube maker in the industry. You might try looking to T&P Magazine, (Tube & Pipe Magazine). Another source would be companies that supply roll tooling. One of the most experienced Would be Roll-Kraft, another that I use frequently would be Chicago Roll. Chicago Roll has a man by the name of Dr. Lee who spends a good deal of his time studying forming stresses and tooling in finite analysis. Telephone number is 1-630-627-8888. Harry Fotch is the owner, (great guy). You might want to start with Bill Charvat their Engineering Manager first. Another great person. He actually had my job years ago.
