عنوان مقاله [English]
The coupling of the electromagnetic field and the mechanical structure field is one of the main problems in the theoretical study of Electromagnetic Forming (EMF). In this study, two possible approaches for the simulation of the electromagnetic tube compression forming process were implemented and compared: A loose-coupled and a sequential-coupled algorithm. In the loose-coupled the electromagnetic field and mechanical structure field were solved separately, but in the sequential-coupled algorithm, the electromagnetic simulation and the mechanical structure simulation were iteratively performed by using Maxwell equations and Finite Difference Method (FDM) as subroutine VDLOAD in ABAQUS software. A deformation of the tube and consequently a change in inductance of tube during the process in the sequential-coupled algorithm was considered. The depth of bead in loose-coupled algorithm compared to experimental result had a 35% error, but in a sequential-coupled algorithm this error has been reduced to 5%. To predict tearing in this process Johnson-Cook damage criterion used. Increasing of discharge voltage and tube thickness respectively, had maximum effect on Johnson-Cook damage. Amount of damage less than 0.8 is conservatively suitable for the safe area without fracture.
