Analysis of Residual Stress Components Developed in Cold Drawing by Finite Element Method


Article Preview

Predicting the behavior of steel during deformation process under service conditions is one of the main challenges in cold drawing. In this paper, finite element method was used to analyze the distribution of residual stress components in a rod with respect to different area reductions in cold drawing process. Cold drawing brought sunken-in deformation at the bottom land of the rod that was in accord with the result obtained from the analysis using ABAQUS. The results obtained from finite element analysis were in close agreement with the determined high-accuracy measurements.
