Simulation for Guide Roll in 3D-FE Analysis of Cold Ring Rolling


Article Preview

A simple and efficient method has been proposed in order to determine the dynamic speed boundary condition caused by the guide rolls for developing the 3D-FE model of cold ring rolling process rapidly. The concept of the motion track of guide rolls has been put forward firstly and an optimal motion track and track type are given by simulation. Meanwhile, an effect of the guide rolls on the ring tilting and ring circularity was simulated and analyzed. The result shows that the simulation results are in good agreement with experiment results from the literature.
