Simulation tool for damage development during hot forming of rings
As a unique and important member of the metal forming family, ring rolling provides a cost effective process route to manufacture seamless rings. Applications of ring rolling cover a wide range of products in aerospace, automotive and civil engineering industries. During this process, due to a complex temperature and deformation history, damage can occur in the material. The aim of this project is to develop a reliable and efficient simulation tool for the prediction of damage initiation and evolution in hot ring rolled products.
