Applied Metal Forming: Including FEM Analysis by Henry S. Valberg

By Henry S. Valberg

Utilized steel Forming: utilizing FEM research describes steel forming idea and the way experimental concepts can be utilized to review any steel forming operation with nice accuracy. for every basic category of strategies, corresponding to forging, rolling, extrusion, wiredrawing, and sheet-metal forming, it explains how FEA (Finite parts research) may be utilized with nice precision to symbolize the forming and during this approach optimize the procedures. FEA has made it attainable to construct very practical FEM-models of any steel forming strategy, together with complicated three-d forming operations, within which advanced items are formed by way of advanced dies. hence, utilizing FEA it's now attainable to imagine any steel forming technique and to check pressure, stresses, and different forming stipulations contained in the components being synthetic as they improve through the approach.

Example text

A layer of material in which there is shear deformation, but of rather small magnitude, can be identified in between each dead zone and the metal further away from the neutral plane. We call this layer a layer of moderate shear (SL) [see Fig. 10]. In fact, a corresponding layer also exists adjacent to the dead zone. In between these layers, a distinctive shear band (SB) can be identified. During the compression stroke, this layer is greatly stretched out by shearing. The initially vertical grid lines of the pattern in this layer are subjected to ≈45◦ rotation, and after deformation, they appear with oblique orientation.

The challenge then is to make a ram design sufficiently strong to take the large extrusion loads, because the ram must be hollow and the extrusions must be taken out through its hollow stem. Another limitation arises from the nature of metal flow in the backward extrusion process. It is a fact that the peripheral layers of the billet in backward extrusion tend to flow much more easily through the die orifice than in the forward process. Billets are commonly produced in continuous casting processes, where logs of large length are made.

4(a). The two flow curves were first used directly in the FEM model, but there was some deviation, with regard to both load–stroke response and metal flow in simulation, from the corresponding conditions in the experiments. Thus, the IPI approach was again used, but now the flow stress was changed, to get better correspondence between simulation and experiment. In many instances, it has been observed that the applied simulation program tends to predict the shear zones too hard, so that there is insufficient localized shearing in them.
