Optimization Design Based on DEFORM-3D Finite Element Analysis about Steel Rolling Production
This paper took the high-speed wire rod rolling process of φ20 bar as the research object, to be simulated numerically under the work platform of the finite element software DEFORM. The simulation results were compared with the actual operation of the production process, the rolling simulation reappeared the actual production situation, realized the visualization of the rolling process. After analysis, the defects of rolling technology were found out. Based on the research, the optimum design was gotten and then simulated which improved the actual production process and avoided the original defects. The optimum design is feasible to practical production and reduce the cost of test in practice The paper just focused on the first one of 12 rolling process as an example to show the simulating process and results.
