Title: Numerical simulation of ring rolling process - Application to superalloy 718 parts

Abstract

Numerical simulation has become a powerful tool that enables to save costs and time in the design and manufacturing of forged parts for aircraft engines. A complete simulation 'package' based on the software code Forge is used at Snecma to predict the properties of such parts and optimize the manufacturing processes. In order to have a good prediction of the metallurgical and mechanical properties, the simulation of the whole forging process is needed. Until now ring rolling simulation tools have been developed but they still need to be improved. Moreover we have to evaluate these tools before bringing them into production. The aim of this paper is to present the work being done at Snecma on ring rolling simulation. An overview of the complete simulation 'package' will first be given. Some tests performed with the ring rolling simulation module in Forge will be presented, including the comparison between simulation results and real parts. The application to an Inconel 718 disk will be discussed more into details.
