Summary

A versatile, finite element approach for modelling repeated, elastic-plastic rolling and rolling-plus-sliding has been developed. Results obtained validate earlier theories and provide improved descriptions of the extent of plasticity and the values of residual stresses and the cyclic and cumulative strains. This paper reviews the approach and the different aspects of the computational problem.
