FREE ABSTRACT (to read the full article, please log in below).

This paper describes the behaviour of inclusions during the hot forging of steel. The aim is to improve the understanding of the influence of deformed inclusions on the product properties. Based on the finite element method (FEM), the movement and deformation of inclusions were analysed by three-dimensional forward and backward tracing schemes. The influence of stress-state on void formation near the hard inclusions was also examined. These themes were exemplified through a 3D forging simulation of an intermediate shaft.
