Analysis of the Stress-Strained State of Billets Processed by Rotary Forging with Special Shape of the Tool
In this paper, we investigated the process of rotary forging of commercially pure copper grade M2 using standard and special-shaped anvils and presented the results of studies obtained by the method of numerical and physical modeling. It is established that the use of anvils with special geometric shapes provides a higher level of accumulated strain and the formation of more dispersed structural states with the same elongation ratio under conditions of multi-cycle processing . The formation of a finer structure in its turn increases the hardness and strength of the material. In addition, the special shape of the anvils provides a positive field of values of the Lode-Nadai coefficient in the cross section of the samples, predominantly in a range of 0.3-0.7 and, correspondingly, a more "comfortable" stress state close to non-uniform all-round compression, which contributes to increasing technological plasticity.
