Finite Element Analysis for Wall Thickness Variation of Seamless Tube in Stretch Reducing Rolling Process
According to the geometrical characteristic of workpiece and groove in the stretch reducing rolling process, three-dimensional elastic-plastic finite-element analysis model was established to simulate the metal deformation, the regularities of distribution of wall thickness of transverse direction longitudinal direction were investigated. The analysis was verified by comparing finite element analysis results with on-line measurements. The length of crop ends was determined as well as product bore polygonization. The study provides the foundation for analyzing product defeat and instructing technological design.
