Proposed model for predicting abrasive wear in hot forging dies
Author(s): E Ebojoh, C Amgbari
Abstract: In this paper, we proposed a new model for predicting the abrasive wear (wear module) in a die during hot forging processes starting with Shaw’s model. The model takes into consideration the deformation energy, sliding velocity and coefficient of friction of the die material and other parameters which was modeled into a differential equation (DE) and can be solved numerically with all necessary boundary conditions and validated against experimental data or through the exact solution method.
