Key Technologies for 3D-FE Modeling of Radial-Axial Ring Rolling Process
Nowadays, 3D-FE Modeling and simulation is an indispensable method for the optimum design and precise control of radial-axial ring rolling process for its complexities. In this paper, the unique forming characteristics of radial-axial ring rolling have first been summarized, and then some key technologies for 3D-FE modeling of the process have been presented and their solution schemes have been given out, lastly the modeling and simulation of radial-axial ring rolling process have been realized using elastic-plastic dynamic explicit procedure under ABAQUS environment. The work provides an important basis and platform for the future investigations, such as forming mechanism and laws, process optimum design and precise control.
