  2. 2. 2 INTRODUCTION  When metal passes through rolls, metal starts deforming and stress builds up at arc of contact. There is residual stress remaining within the rolled product post rolling.  Finite Element Method (FEM) Analysis is a method of analysis for numerical solution of field problems. A field problem requires that we determine spatial distribution of one or more dependent variables.  In our project, we are concerned with cold rolling process only and intend to obtain the influence of various parameters such as Co-efficient of friction, Plate feed speed and Roller Velocity on outputs like Von-Mises Stress, PEEQ & Pressure, whose distributions have already been obtained through different inputs using FEM software.

  6. 6. 6 FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS Before we proceed to the formulation of problems and their simulation there are some basic concepts that one should be familiar with:  QUASI-STATIC SIMULATIONS USING EXPLICIT DYNAMICS  MASS SCALING  ALE method  Element: CPE4R(4 node bilinear plain strain , quadrilateral , reduced integration, hourglass control) FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS
  7. 7. 7 FEA ROLLING ASSUMPTIONS These are the assumptions that we have taken in our simulations:  The arc of contact between the rolls and the metal is a part of a circle.  The coefficient of friction, μ, is constant in simulation, but in actual scenario, μ varies along the arc of contact.  The metal is considered to deform plastically during rolling.  The volume of metal is constant before and after rolling. In actual scenario, the volume might decrease a little bit due to close-up of pores.  The velocity of the rolls is assumed to be constant.  The metal only extends in the rolling direction and no extension in the width of the material.  The cross sectional area normal to the rolling direction is not distorted.

  20. 20. 20 VARIATION IN RESIDUAL STRESSES  As seen in earlier slides, we obtained the Von-Mises Stress distribution. Once the Roll force is removed, the stress remaining in the Sheet may be considered as Residual Stress.  Now we proceed to see the variation in the residual stresses based on the following parameters: •Co-efficient of friction f •Plate Feed Velocity Vp •Roller Velocity Vr FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS
  21. 21. 21 CO-EFFICIENT OF FRICTION f 200 195 190 185 180 175 170 165 160 155 150 Residual Stress v/s Co-eff of Friction f 0.2 0.25 0.3 0.35 0.4 0.45 Von Mises / Residual Stresses Co-Efficient of Friction f Residual Stresses Residual stresses initially increase with increase in Co-efficient of Friction f upto value = 0.35 and then decreases FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS

FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS
  24. 24. 24 OPTIMUM PARAMETERS Based on all the above graphs, we may conclude that there is a most optimum combination of parameters which would result in an overall reduction in the residual stresses. Co-efficient of Friction f = 0.45 Velocity of Plate Feed VP = 1.5 m/s Velocity of Roller VR = 9 rad/s FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS
  25. 25. 25 SCOPE OF FUTUREWORK When we formulated the shell problem, in the job analysis stage we found excessive deformation in the roller outer surface and the plate. This was perhaps due to incorrect load and boundary conditions that we had applied. In spite of our best efforts, we were unable to remove and eliminate the error and hence there remains a scope for future work in that direction. FEM ANALYSIS OF ROLLING PROCESS
