Mathematical Simulation of Billet Profile during Spray Forming Process


Article Preview

The parameters of atomizer were obtained from the experiment. Based on the obtained parameters, a mathematical model was proposed to simulate the growing profile of billet during spray forming. The model included some process parameters which relate to the shape profile such as nozzle data, eccentric distance, rotation speed, withdraw speed and so on. After being compared with the billet shape of experiment, we got good consistent results between the simulation and experiment, it was found that the results of the simulation is in good consistent with that of the experiment.
