Abstract: The use of numerical modeling tools in the simulation of different methods of forming is nowadays a must. The forging industry, thanks to advanced calculation and simulation softwares such as Forge or Abaqus used in many studies and theses, can take advantage of good control settings (process and material parameters) that enable the production of high quality pieces, with complex geometry and highly competitive. Numerical simulation with the help of appropriate methods as ALE (Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian) and SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics) that will be addressed in the report , can significantly reduce the time and costs through process optimization and virtual prototyping. With the integration of material laws adapted for each case during the forming process and the control of process parameters, simulation results are highly accurate for processes such as machining and forging, which is the subject of our study. In partnership with Héroux-Devtek, our work focuses on the simulation of the manufacturing of an aircraft landing gear component in aluminum by hot closed-die forging. This study requires a good understanding of the kinematics of tools, and material properties before and during the forming process. Thus, a parametric study to test the importance of each parameter on the final results will be done. Simulation softwares that will be used are Abaqus explicit and Ls-dyna. The analyses conducted in this study were used to develop an analysis methodology, to find a good first approximation of the forging simulation of the component of the landing gear and to identify parameters that allow for better simulation results. Keywords: Hot forging, ALE, SPH, FEM, aluminum, landing gear
