A finite element analysis for near-net-shape forming of Al6061 powder was performed under warm pressing. The advantages of warm compaction by rubber isostatic pressing were discussed to obtain parts with better density distributions. To simulate densification and deformed shape of a powder compact during warm pressing, the elastoplastic constitutive equation based on yield function of Shima-Oyane was implemented into a finite element program(ABAQUS). The hyperelastic constitutive equation based on the Ogden strain energy potential was employed to analyze nonlinear elastic response of rubber. Finite element results were compared with experimental data for Al6061 powder compacts under warm pressing.
