The thixo-forging of magnesium matrix composite was analyzed with computer numerical simulation based on rigid viscoplastic finite element method. The constitutive model of SiCp/AZ61 composite was established in our prior literature. Behavior of metal flow and temperature field were obtained. The differences between traditional forging and thixo-forging processes were analyzed. Results indicated that thixo-forging was better in filling cavity than forging. Simulation results were good agreement with experimental ones.
