Using of FEM to Analyse of the Reinforcement Bar Rolling Process


Article Preview

Reinforcement bars are chiefly used in the building industry at production of reinforced concrete constructions and as working elements in bridge building. An important factor for strength joining bar and concrete are dimensions and positioning of ribs at the bar’s surface. In this paper the computer simulation of the rolling of the round reinforcement bar is presented. It has been performed in order to define the specific features of the mode of metal flow in the roll gap and to determine the effect of the shape and dimensions of the roll on the pitch of the ribs of the finished bar.
