Numerical Simulation of Hammer Forging Process for Inconel 718
The computer simulations during hammer forging process for Inconel 718 were conducted, and the temperature, strain and stress evolution were obtained and analyzed. Rebound takes place right after the ram goes up and this may have a significant effect on the temperature distribution and the reduction of friction. The simulated results can be helpful to predict further microstructure of forged product and the service life of the die.
