Simulation of Forming Process as an Educational Tool Using Physical Modeling
Abdullah, A. B.; Muda, M. R.; Samad, Z.
International Education Studies, v1 n1 p101-109 Feb 2008
Metal forming process simulation requires a very high cost including the cost for dies, machine and material and tight process control since the process involve very huge pressure. A physical modeling technique is developed and initiates a new era of educational tool of simulating the process effectively. Several publications and findings have shown a potential of the techniques else where. The objective of the paper is to simulate the closed-die forging. In this work, billet material from plasticine is used and dies are fabricated from perspex. The result indicates that billet volume and geometry of the billet is significant in forming process to measure the filling-ability and forming load required in the process.
