Powder Compaction of a Rotational Flanged Component
Application ID: 89401
The powder compaction process is becoming common in the manufacturing industry, thanks to its potential to produce components of complex shape and high strength. In this example, the compaction of iron powder to form an axisymmetric rotational flanged component is analyzed with capped Drucker–Prager plastic model. The friction between the metal powder and die is taken into account.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Nonlinear Structural Materials Module and
- either the MEMS Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
