Study on Formability about ME20M Magnesium Alloy Sheet
Warm forming of magnesium alloy sheet has attracted more and more attention in recent years. Mechanics tension test has been made in this paper in order to study the constitutive relationship of ME20M magnesium alloy sheet at different temperatures and strain rates. And a constitutive relationship which includes a softening factor has been put forward. Warm deep drawing experiment and numerical simulation on ME20M magnesium alloy sheet have been made in which the attention was focused on the forming temperature. The results showed that the limit deep drawing height of ME20M magnesium alloy sheet can be dramatically improved as the temperature goes up, especially when the temperature was over about 250°C. Simultaneity, it is feasible and effective to add a material model into numerical simulation software by user subroutine.
