Abstract

Finite element DEFORM™ 3D software is employed to examine the plastic deformation behavior of H-profile porous beams at the roll gap under various rolling conditions. The finite element code is based on a rigid-plastic model and the analysis assumes that the upper and lower rolls are rigid bodies and that the temperature change induced during rolling is sufficiently small to be ignored. The filling ratio at the roll gap, the density distribution and the effective stress distribution are systematically examined for one-pass and two-pass H-profile rolling processes performed using various roll profile ratios and thickness reduction ratios. The numerical results confirm the validity of the FE model as a suitable investigative tool for analyzing the rolling characteristics of H-profile porous beams.
