Li, B.: Compared Experimental and Theoretical Investigations of Forming Technical Parameters in Shape Rolling with Example of the Hot Rolling of Angle Steels

Abstract: Thermomechanical FEM Simulation for the hot rolling of angle steel in six pass was carried out. Capability of the FEM in predicting various forming parameters was demonstrated. Predicted results, including local metal flow, were verified with the measurement in rolling tests. The verificatiion indicates a high accuracy of the model prediction.
