Numerical Simulation of the Rolling Process of Pipeline Sheet
The Institute of Metal Forming and Safety Engineering has developed technology for manufacturing grade X80 pipeline plates according to European standard EN 10208-2. Experimental chemical compositions ensuring a high level of yield strength have been developed. The article describes a method for selecting chemical composition . The advancement of rolling technology takes much time and many calculations. Thus, using numerical simulations provides a possibility of a theoretical analysis of the plates made from new materials , . Preliminary studies  have disclosed a large volume of deformations during the rolling process, which causes the distortion of rolls and generates heavy loads. For the theoretical analysis of rolling plates, Forge 2008® was used. The paper presents the obtained results of energy analysis and strength parameters displayed in Figure 1. The article considers a total amount of pressure on metal rollers and changes in the rolling moment.
