EFFECT OF PROCESS PARAMETERS ON MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR IN HOT-SLAB ROLLING
AbstractThis paper studies hot rolling process of typical low carbon steel by using rigid-plastic finite element also found that rolling force remains unchanged when initial slab temperature reaches certain value. The friction and effective stress distribution in the slab are obtained for the steady-state rolling process. The positive friction in backward slip zone is found to be greater than the negative friction in forward slip zone along rolling direction, indicating that friction acts as the driving force in the rolling process.
