Abstract

Machining induced residual stresses (MIRS) are a main driver for distortion of monolithic thin walled aluminum workpieces. A typical machining process for manufacturing such geometries for the aerospace industry is milling. In order to avoid high costs due to remanufacturing or part rejection, a simulation combination, consisting of two different finite element method (FEM) models, is developed to predict the part distortion due to MIRS. First, a 3D FEM cutting simulation is developed to predict the residual stresses due to machining. This simulation avoids cost intensive residual stress measurements. The milling process of the aluminum alloy AA7050-T7451 with a regular end mill is simulated. The simulation output, MIRS, forces and temperatures, is validated by face milling experiments on aluminum. The model takes mechanical dynamic effects, thermomechanical coupling, material properties and a damage law into account. Second, a subsequent finite element simulation, characterized by a static, linear elastic model, where the simulated MIRS from the cutting model are used as an input and the distortion of the workpiece is calculated, is presented. The predicted distortion is compared to an additional experiment, where a 1 mm thick wafer was removed at the milled surface of the aluminum workpiece. Furthermore, a thin walled component that represents a down scaled version of an aerospace component is manufactured and its distortion is analyzed.
The results show that MIRS could be forecasted with moderate accuracy, which leads to the conclusion that the FEM cutting model needs to be improved in order to use the MIRS for a correct prediction of the distortion with the help of the linear elastic FEM model. The linear elastic model on the other hand is able to predict the part distortion with higher accuracy when using measured data instead of MIRS from the cutting simulation.
