Analysis of Asymmetrical Rolling Process of Multilayer Plates
. Literature provides three basic methods of explosive cladding, developed by Darenport and Person. Welding trials were performed in two- and three-layer arrangements, where in the second case, copper plates were welded with plates made from aluminium alloys with an interlayer of pure aluminium. Explosive welding technology does not always allow for joining of sheets of specific thicknesses. In order to obtain such thickness, they need to be rolled. The paper presents results of numerical study of asymmetrical rolling process of multilayer plates M1E-Al99.8-AlMg5. Numerical modeling of rolling of multilayer plates was realized by means of Forge 2D program that is based on finite element method. Obtained research results enabled to elucidate the process of rolling of multilayer plates.
