Finite Element Analysis of TA15 Titanium Alloy Beam Hammer Forging Forming at Different Temperatures
The hammer forging forming process of TA15 titanium alloy girder is taken as an example on this study. When girder were formed at different original temperature as 850 °C、900 °Cand 950 °C, the needed hammering times and each hammer’s stroke and varieties of damage factor were researched respectively based on software Deform. By simulation analysis, the needed hammering times is 7 times, 5 times and 4 times in order, and the damage factor which dangerous place located at the right top fillet of girder reached the highest point at about 86mm stroke ,and the original temperature 950 °C gave the best answer. The results are significant theoretical foundation for the practical production and study of TA15 titanium alloy.
