In this work, an analytical study of the macroscopic deformation and microstructure evolution of Ti-6Al-2Zr-1Mo-1V alloys during rolling-spinning forming process was performed by developing Finite Element (FE) modeling using the ABAQUS/Explicit platform. The developed FE model was validated by comparing with experimental results. To investigate the shearing deformation during rolling-spinning process, representative nodes were selected in the FE model. The shearing strains of these nodes were obtained by modeling. The influence of shearing deformation in rolling-spinning forming process on microstructures was also analyzed. An optimal selection of process parameters was obtained to achieve better microstructure.
