The phenomenon of gradual decrease of internal stress with the deformation of material maintained under the precondition of certain temperature and initial stress or pre-strain is called stress relaxation. Due to that, the flow stress of the metal material falls rapidly when the hot forming process pauses, and then the required forming load. In this paper, the experiment was carried out to study the stress relaxation property of Ti-6Al-4V, in the temperature range of 1023K~1123K and with the pre-tension strain 0.7%, 4% and 10%. The quartic delay function was used to describe the stress relaxation behavior. The predicted value of stress relaxation equation is in good agreement with the experimental data, and the correlation coefficient is above 0.99. Arrhenius creep constitutive equation embedded in CAE software was derived. The finite element model of stress relaxation process of test bar was builded, and the tensile-relaxation experiment was performed under the loading condition of 1:1 part forming process. The forming force results agree well, and the validity and accuracy of the constitutive model are verified, laying a foundation for the subsequent process simulation and optimization.
