Numerical Simulation on Conform Process of Aluminum Alloy Rectangular Hollow Conductor
In the investigation, the continuous extrusion forming (CONFORM) process of aluminum alloy rectangular hollow conductor has been studied by three-dimensional finite-element method based on Software DEFORM-3D. The rigid-viscoplastic constitutive equation was employed in the model. Distributions of velocity field, strain field, stress field and temperature field were obtained in the forming process. The results will give effective guidelines to optimize the processing parameters and to select, the die structure and die materials.
