Effects of Friction on Precision Forging Process of Blade with a Damper Platform


Article Preview

A blade with a damper platform, with excellent anti-vibration characteristic and high efficiency, has become one of the most important types of blades being developed in the aeronautical engines. During the precision forging process of this blade, the friction between dies and workpiece has important effects on metal flow, deformation defects, load and energy etc. So researching the effects of friction conditions on the forging process of blade with a damper platform has been a crucial problem urgent to be resolved. In this paper, the precision forging process of titanium alloy blade with a damper platform under different friction conditions has been simulated and analyzed based on the DEFORM-3D software platform. The obtained results reveal the influence laws of friction on temperature field and load-stroke curves, and provide a significant basis for determining technological parameters of the blade forging process.
