Adopting the DEFORM software for the finite element analysis, this study simulated steady-state plastic deformation of the sheet at the roll-gap during asymmetrical sheet rolling. Using FEM code DEFORM, the effects of roll speed ratio, roll radius ratio, friction factor ratio upon the curvature of the rolled product and rolling force were systematically discussed. With a view to verifying the validity of the study simulated, a series of experiments on asymmetrical cold sheet rolling using Aluminum sheet as specimen are carried out. The comparisons between numerical and experimental results show good agreement. Therefore, this numerical model using DEFORM software can offer useful knowledge for designing the pass-schedule of asymmetrical sheet rolling.
