Title: Modelling of Viscoplastic Behaviour of IN718 Under Hot Forging Conditions

Abstract

The mechanical properties of IN718 are directly related to microstructure such as grain size and the hardening mechanisms, which are effective during thermomechanical processing and subsequent heat treatment. In this study a set of unified viscoplastic constitutive equations were determined for IN718 from experimental data of hot forging conditions. Techniques were developed to analyse the reliability and consistency of the experimental data derived from different previous publications. In addition to viscoplastic flow of the material, the determined material model can be used to predict the evolution of dislocations, recrystallisation and grain size occurring during thermomechanical processing.

  • Ni based alloy IN718 is important material used for engine shafts, turbine disks of gas turbine engines. The grain refining of the IN718 becomes important because of the improvement of reliability. We have developed newly advanced {delta} process to obtain the grain of less than 22.5 {mu} m (ASTM No.8.0) even after solution treatment. Furthermore we have developed the microstructural prediction system of IN718 for the process modelling. In this paper, the advanced {delta} process and it's process modelling in the turbine disk forging were reported. As the result, we could obtain successful fine microstructure less than 22.5 {mu} mmore » after solution treatment in turbine disk.« less
  • The paper presents the comparative analysis between 2D and 3D modelling of a simulative experiment, performed in laboratory environment, in which operating conditions approximate hot forging of a turbine aerofoil section. The plane strain deformation was chosen as an ideal case to analyze the process because of the thickness variations in the final section and the consequent distributions of contact pressure and sliding velocity at the interface that are closed to the conditions of the real industrial process. In order to compare the performances of 2D and 3D approaches, two different analyses were performed and compared with the experiments inmore » terms of loads and temperatures peaks at the interface between the dies and the workpiece.« less
  • In order to understand the tribological processes and interactions in the tool-workpiece-interface systematically, basic experiments that allow an independent variation of influencing parameters are necessary. The ring-on-disc test is a popular model experiment that is often used in tribological analyses at low normal contact pressures.The scope of the paper is an analysis of the applicability of the ring-on-disc test for high normal pressures as used in forging processes, using aluminium AA6082 as workpiece material. It turned out, that this test is a convenient method to measure friction under forging conditions.
  • Isothermal constant-displacement-rate compression tests of superalloy IN718 were conducted using a computer-controlled MTS machine, at temperatures from 960 C to 1,040 C, initial strain rates from 0.001 to 1.0 s{sup {minus}1}, and true strains from 0.105 to 1.204 (corresponding to a relative height reduction from 10 to 70 pct). The flow stress was obtained directly from compression tests using the controlling computer. The grain size was obtained by the intercept method and by comparing microstructures to the ASTM standard grain chart. Based on the results of these tests, a mathematical model showing the hot-deformation behavior of superalloy IN718 was developedmore » in the form of a constitutive equation and a Hall-Petch relationship. Both the flow stress and the grain size calculated from the model were compared to the experimental results. Meanwhile, the effect of hot-deformation parameters such as strain, strain rate, and temperature on the flow stress and on the grain size was analyzed according to the model. It was found that these parameters influenced the flow stress and the grain size. The model developed in this work can be used to explain such effects.« less
  • A full-field formulation based on Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) has been adapted and used to predict the micromechanical fields that develop in columnar Ih ice polycrystals deforming in compression by dislocation creep. The predicted intragranular mechanical fields are in qualitative good agreement with experimental observations, in particular those involving the formation of shear and kink bands. These localization bands are associated with the large internal stresses that develop during creep in such anisotropic material, and their location, intensity, morphology and extension are found to depend strongly on the crystallographic orientation of the grains and on their interaction with neighbor crystals.more » The predictions of the model are also discussed in relation with the deformation of columnar sea and lake ice, and with the mechanical behavior of granular ice of glaciers and polar ice sheets, as well.« less
