Numerical Analysis of Two-Phase Thermal Flow for Rheology Forging Process
The algorithm two-phase flow model, developed in this study, gives die filling patterns, velocity, temperature and solid fraction of rheology material during rheology forging process. To calculate the velocity and temperature fields, the respective governing equations corresponding to the liquid and solid region were adapted. Therefore, respective numerical models considering the solid and liquid phase co-existent within the rheology material have been developed to predict the defects of part manufactured by the rheology forging process. This study has focused on the simulation of the rheology forging process and calculation of the velocity profiles and temperature distribution. And, to predict the liquid segregation in the part, the deviation of velocity between liquid and solid region in the two-phase flow model was analysed.
