FEM Analysis of Large H-Beam in Rough Rolling Process
The Standard and Explicit solver of ABAQUS were synthetically used to establish finite element model for reciprocating multi-pass rough rolling of large H-beam, in which the re-meshing technique was utilized to solve the problem of excessive deformation and rollers’ deformation were taken into simulation to increase the accuracy. Based on the simulation results, stress field, thermal field and deformation behavior of the workpiece were discussed. It clearly showed that the main deformation of profiled blank in rough rolling was web broadening. Compare the analytical rolling force results to the practical rolling process, and this method could provide some valuable references to the rolling practice.
