New Groove Design and Three-Dimensional Numerical Simulation of Ultra-Fine Grain of Bar Rolling
A new groove design method of uniform strong strain of bar rolling was proposed based on the principle of strong plastic deformation to manufacture ultra-fine grain(UFG), and flat-oval groove type with the characteristics of big crushed and multidirectional deformation was set up. The numerical analysis model of hot continuous bar rolling process was created using nonlinear finite element method. The study of the law of plastic strain distribution after each rolling pass of the caliber series indicated that the caliber can satisfy with the precise size and shape, and can also better introduce the plastic strain to the center of cross section and get uniform strong strain. The largest strain was more than 5.0 in the center of cross section, in which condition ultra-fine grain can be fabricated. Therefore, this study provides important theoretical basis for the ultra-fine grain of bar rolling development.
