The effect of adiabatic heating on microstructure evolution during high strain rate subtransus forging of a Ti-6Al-4V alloy having equiaxed initial microstructure was studied through experiments and modelling. Ø45 × 67.5 mm cylindrical billets with embedded thermocouples were forged at four different α+β temperatures on a Schuler 2100t screw press to evaluate the extent of adiabatic heating in different parts of the billet. In the centre of the billet, the highest temperature increase due to adiabatic heating exceeded the β transus (~1000 °C) during forging. The microstructure of the forged billets was examined for any changes in β phase volume fraction due to adiabatic heating. The forging process was then simulated in Deform 2D/3D software. High strain rate compression testing in the α+β and β temperature fields was carried out using a Phoenix forge simulator to generate input mechanical properties for the model. The effect of the billet size on the α-β phase transformation during forging and post-forge cooling is also discussed.
