The soundness of an ingot after hot forging with different V-shaped lower dies is evaluated using finite element simulations.Two different modelling approaches that make use of uncoupled ductile damage and coupled ductile damage based on porousplasticity are employed. It is shown that the two approaches provide somewhat different results. A simple quantification schemeis suggested for ranking the overall performance of the different geometries of the V-shaped lower dies. Results show that alower die angle in the range 90°-120° is capable of ensuring the best results.
