Friction Factor of 6061 Aluminum Alloy and Application to the Finite Element Analysis of Wheel Forging
The friction factor between 6061 aluminum alloy and die material (SKD61) are determined at different temperatures by using ring compression test which are carried out on a material testing machine. Mechanical properties and fiction factor are then applied to the finite element analysis of the wheel forging for different elevated temperature. Maximum forging load, effective stress and temperature distribution are determined of the wheel forging, using the finie element analysis. Finally, the wheel parts are formed by the forging machine under the conditions using finite element analysis.
