Extrusion process by finite volume method using OpenFoam software
Martins, Marcelo Matos; Bressan, Jose Divo; Button, Sergio Tonini; Ivankovic, Alojz
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCES IN MATERIALS AND PROCESSING TECHNOLOGIES (AMPT2010), 24–27 October 2010, Paris, (France) The computational codes are very important tools to solve engineering problems. In the analysis of metal forming process, such as extrusion, this is not different because the computational codes allow analyzing the process with reduced cost. Traditionally, the Finite Element Method is used to solve solid mechanic problems, however, the Finite Volume Method (FVM) have been gaining force in this field of applications. This paper presents the velocity field and friction coefficient variation results, obtained by numerical simulation using the OpenFoam Software and the FVM to solve an aluminum direct cold extrusion process Other funder The National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) – Brazil, State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) – Brazil, State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC) – Brazil and University College Dublin (UCD) – Ireland.
