Strain Behavior of Nickel Alloy 200 during Multiaxial Forging through Finite Element Modeling
AbstractMultiaxial forging (MAF) is one of the appealing methods of severe plastic deformation (SPD) techniques to fabricate ultrafine-grained (UFG) materials. In this study; the influence of process parameters such as strain rate; friction; and initial temperature has been assessed through finite element simulation of Nickel 200 alloy. The Johnson–Cook equation was applied in simulating the MAF process. The homogeneous microstructure of a material processed by MAF is an important requirement to obtain uniform mechanical and other properties. The uniformity in properties was evaluated by the investigation of the hardness measurements; effective strain (ES), and inhomogeneous factor (IF) or coefficient of standard deviation. The results showed that the inhomogeneous factor decreases with an increase in strain rate and decrease in temperature. It was found that a more homogeneous structure is observed with an increasing number of MAF cycles and the strain rate strain. Furthermore; the average grain size reduced from 850 nm to 220 nm after three cycles of MAF. Finally; experimental work was performed to validate the results. View Full-Text
