Mathematical model to simulate thermo-mechanical controlled processing in rod (or bar) rolling

This study presents a mathematical model for computing the thermo-mechanical parameters such as the strain and strain rate at a given pass and the temperature variation during rolling and cooling between inter-stands (pass), to assess the potential for developing “Thermo-Mechanical Controlled Process” technology in rod (or bar) rolling, which has been a well-known technical terminology in strip (or plate) rolling since the 1970s. The model has then been applied to a four-pass (oval-round or round-oval) bar rolling sequence for predicting the pass-by-pass AGS, by incorporating the equation for recrystallization behavior and AGS evolution being widely used in strip rolling. The predicted AGS was compared with those obtained from the hot torsion experiment. Results revealed the proposed model, coupled with the recrystallization behavior and AGS evolution model developed for strip (or plate) rolling, might be applied directly to rod (or bar) rolling. We also found that the recrystallization behavior during rod rolling was significantly influenced by the method for calculating the thermo-mechanical parameters, especially the strain.
