Research on the Converse Design of Aluminum Alloy Connecting-Rod Slab Based on Casting-Forging Coordinates Process
It is very important that the shape and size of the slab is designed for forging quality in casting-forging coordinate process. The converse design of aluminum alloy connecting-rod slab is investigated. First, the initial structure of the connecting rod slab is designed, then its forging process is simulated by the software DEFORM, modifying and optimizing the initial structure according to the problems in the analysis, and the slab's casting process is simulated. The converse design reduces the blindness in the slab design process, shorts the designed cycle, and ensures the consistency between slab and the final forging better.
