THERMOMECHANICAL MODELLING AND SIMULATION OF C38 THIXOEXTRUSION STEEL
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
The present paper focuses the modelling and the simulation of a direct thixoextrusion test achieved on C38 semi-solid steel. To validate the modelling and the simulation, it is important to get various experimental informations during the test and to correlate them with simulated results. In a previous paper (Becker et al, 2008), the macro and micro structure obtained for different process parameters during thixoextrusion of C38 were investigated. In this work, those results are correlated to those obtained by simulations of the processing. The constitutive equation of the material is given by a multi-scale modelling based on micromechanics and homogenization techniques, labelled as micro-macro modelling (Favier et al, 2009). The parameters of the model are determined (i) using literature results and (ii) to match various experimental measurements obtained during the test and described in Becker et al (2008) such as the die temperature during the test and the load-displacement curve. Comparisons between experimental and simulated reveal the presence of complex temperature field and the presence of zones having very low viscosities. These zones contribute actively to the semi-solid material flow.

Impact of experimental conditions on material response during forming of steel in semi-solid state BECKER, Eric; FAVIER, Véronique; BIGOT, Régis; CEZARD, Pierre; LANGLOIS, Laurent (Elsevier, 2010)Semi-solid forming is an effective near-net-shape forming process to produce components with complex geometry and in fewer forming steps. It benefits from the complex thixotropic behaviour of semi-solids. However, the ...

Steel Thixoforging: Heat Exchange Impact on the Mechanical and Metallurgical Features of Thixoforged Samples BECKER, Eric; CEZARD, Pierre; BIGOT, Régis; LANGLOIS, Laurent; FAVIER, Véronique; PIERRET, Jean-Christophe (Trans Tech Publications, 2008)Steel thixoforging process combines the advantages of performing parts having highly complex shapes and good mechanical properties. These advantages result from the shear thinning flow behaviour of semi-solids due to ...
