2D-CFD Analysis of the Fluid Pressure and Velocity Distribution of Experimentally Machine Hammer Peened Surface Structures in Hydrodynamic Applications
Machine hammer peening is an incremental forming process for high frequency surface finishing of technical components. Recently, machine hammer peening has attracted automotive industry’s attention for the surface finishing and structuring of deep drawing tools. Deep drawing tools surface structured by machine hammer peening are characterized by beneficial friction and wear characteristics in lubricated sliding contacts. However, the physics of hydrodynamic effects in machine hammer peened structures is yet insufficiently researched. Therefore, this work investigates the hydrodynamic effects in surface structures generated by machine hammer peening using a two-dimensional computational fluid dynamic analysis. The effects of structure geometry, structure arrangement and selected sliding parameters on the hydrodynamic fluid pressure and velocity distribution within the structures are analysed. It was observed, that the sliding direction and the structure arrangement have a significant influence on the hydrodynamic fluid pressure maximum.
