3-D Finite Element Simulation of the Vertical-Horizontal Rolling Process
In order to investigate the deformation behavior of a plate during a vertical-horizontal rolling process, a thermo-mechanical coupling analysis is carried out by three-dimensional (3-D) rigid-plastic FEM to simulate the process. The metal flow and the shape evolution of the plate are focused during this investigation. The thickness and the width of the plate agree well with the measured values.
