The isothermal forging of a titanium alloy engine disk is analyzed by the rigid-viscoplastic finite element method. Deformation mechanics of the forging process are discussed, based on the solution. The effects of temperature and heat conduction on the forging process are also investigated by coupled thermo-viscoplastic analysis. Since the dual microstructure / property titanium disk can be obtained by controlling strain distribution during forging, the process modeling by the finite element method is especially attractive.
