Abstract

A method is proposed for prediction of the unstable deformation in hot forging process using both the determined thermomechnical parameter windows of the unstable deformation zones and finite element simulation. Taking Ti-6.5Al-3.5Mo-1.5Zr-0.3Si alloy as the testing material, the thermomechnical parameter windows of the unstable deformation zones for the Ti-alloy are integrated into a commercial finite element simulation software platform. The distribution and variation of the unstable deformation zones of the alloy in hot compression process are simulated and predicted using the tailor-made finite element codes in the finite element platform. The simulation results tally with the physical experiments and the proposed method for simulation and prediction of the unstable deformation is thus verified and its efficiency is validated.
