Forging Process Design of Al Rotating Arm Holder by FE Analysis


Article Preview

Aluminium alloys have been widely used in the structure of aircraft and passenger car because of its lightweight. It is also interested in the lightweight products to improve the fuel efficiency. In this research, forging design of Al rotating arm holder has been studied by FE analysis. Structural analysis of the model was performed at first. From the results of the analysis, effective stress, effective strain and safety factor acting on the component were obtained.
