Effect of AISI316 Stainless Steel Geometry on Temperature Distribution during Hot Rolling at High Reduction
The effects of material geometry on some rolling parameters have been studied. In a recent work, geometrical variation was introduced into the Reverse Sandwich Rolling Model (RSM) for AISI316 Stainless Steel (HCSS316) to study the effect of ingot geometry on temperature distribution during hot rolling. Validation of the model was however limited to hot rolling simulation at low reductions. In this work, the RSM, simulated in FORTRAN, is validated with hot rolling experimental data for higher reductions. Results obtained revealed a similar pattern of symmetrical temperature distribution from the rolling surfaces, to the midthickness of the material as earlier observed at low reductions.
