Finite Element Analysis of Wire Drawing Process with different die contours

Ch Siva Naga Teja, Guru Murty N, P.Satish Reddy


Finite element method is a numerical analysis tool for analyzing complex problems. It was originally developed as a tool for structural, Thermal; fluent analysis and magnetic, electrical current flow analysis but the theory and formulation has been progressively gives approximate solutions. I have taken the problem of understanding wire drawing process from theory of pure plasticity and Avitzur’s theory of law’s ‘Wire Drawing through Conical Dies of small cone angles and large cone angles’ This theory was used to obtain the drawing load. Wire is drawn through dies with different die contours viz. plain die with die land, Convex die, Concave die. Hence I found  least wire drawing defects and die life increased. Loads were applying to the finite element model treating the problem to be axi symmetric. The problem to be solving by using ANSYS 10 classic  a popular FEA software package.
