Power Spinning Study of Thin-Walled 5A06 Aluminum Alloy Cylinder with Longitudinal and Hoop Inner Ribs for Manufacturing Engineering
In this paper, a three-dimensional finite element model of power spinning 5A06 aluminum alloy cylinder with longitudinal and hoop ribs is established. It reveals the laws of the stress and strain distribution of the longitudinal and hoop ribs in the spinning process, provides a theoretical guidance for the further optimization of process parameters for manufacturing engineering. The 5A06 aluminum alloy cylinder validated testes are through three stages. The first is to study spinning forming of the ten longitudinal ribs. The second is to study spinning forming ten longitudinal ribs and a hoop combined rib. The third is to study spinning forming qualified samples with ten longitudinal ribs and four hoop combined ribs. Optimization aspect of the aluminum alloy reinforced spinning parameters are obtained through simulation analysis and experimental verification, to provide an ideal theoretical guidance for further material application and production.
