The Influence of the Interstand Tension of the Band on Roll Wear during the Continuous Groove-Rolling Process
Numerical modelling of the round bar rolling process, while considering the wear of passes depending on their shape, was carried out within the present work. The analysis of the rolling process was conducted thus analysing the influence of interstand tension on roll wear. For the theoretical study of the rolling process, Forge2011® was employed, which is finite element method-relying software that enables the thermo-mechanical simulation of rolling processes in a triaxial state of strain. The wear model implemented in Forge2011® permits no quantitative evaluation, but only a comparative analysis of the wear of rolls. In order to use the results of simulation employing the simplified Archard model for the quantitative evaluation of roll wear, it is necessary to define the factor of wear and the hardness of the tool as a function of temperature.
