A laboratory steckel mill simulation

By John S. Hinton and John H. Beynon


The recrystallisation of AlSl430 ferritic stainless steel during hot working is considered crucial for developing suitable product properties for sheet metal forming. Attention has focused on the ability to accurately reproduce the process route conditions of hot Steckel mill rolling at the laboratory scale. The variability was considered through five complex simulations on the IMMPETUS thermomechanical compression (TMC) test machine. This paper presents the methods employed to translate the industrial practice into laboratory based experiments, and the development of the simulation to a satisfactory level. This paper includes a discussion of the quality of the simulation, particularly with regard to its use as a tool for analysing metallurgical changes
