3-D FE Simulation and Analysis on Radial-Axial Large Ring Rolling


Article Preview

An effective method was proposed to simulate and control the motion track of guide roller during radial-axial ring rolling in FE simulation. The 3-D finite element model was constructed according to the principle and feature of rolling technology. The rolling process was simulated and analyzed by using dynamic explicit finite element technology. The different rolling processes with different technology parameter were simulated. The width spreads and rolling forces under different parameters are compared and analyzed. The results indicated that high quality ring product could be obtained when rational parameters in radial and axial were assigned.
