CAE Analysis on the Precision Forging of Big Semimonocoque of Vehicle Axle
A CAE analysis on the precision forging of big semimonocoque of vehicle axle was conducted based on DEFORM-3D software. It discussed effects of forging billet size and shape on the forging property and effect of forging shape on the flow law of metal materials, and analyzed equivalent stress, strain distribution and load-stroke curve during the forging process. Research results are used to optimize mold structure and technological parameters. Precision forging of big semimonocoque was verified valid by practical production.
