YIELD STRESS- JO/ 14
Resistance of metal to deformation real case
In an ideal situation there is no friction between the working tools and the work piece. In
this case the stress produced by the vertical force gives rise to uniform distributed vertical forces
over the whole cross section and the specimen can deform freely in the lateral direction and it is
valid the precedent expression.
In the real case there is always an influence of friction on the distribution of tensions
inside the specimen. Frictional forces on the surface of specimen restrict the lateral flow of
metal and hence the pressure of the tool must overcome not only the constrained yield stress
11 *Kot but al so the frictional forces.
A complete expression for the yield stress will be then the following:
- ~ : resistance of metal to deformation in the real case
- 11K
0
f: constrained yield stress for the given method of working
- Kr: resistance of metal to flow that consider the influence of friction between the
compressive tool and the deformed specimen

Kwr in long products rolling (3-axial strain)
In general all the calculation formulae to calculate Kwr have been developed for flat rolling and
must be corrected for long products rolling.
In this case are not satisfied the conditions seen before for flat rolling, in fact:
• NOT free spread in sorne cases, where there is a strong constraint of the lateral spread due
to the grooved rolls, and almost free spread in other cases.
• Ratio w/h small compared to flat rolling ( ~ 1 also <1).
• Entry and exit geometry is not well known.
• 11 value not well defined (1 <11<1.15)

With these conditions the rolling
pressure varies not only along the

ummarizin for Ion roducts:
• In the calculation of Kwr it' s necessaries to consider al so that the shapes of the entry and exit
grooves doesn't have a constant height along the spread direction (equivalent rectangles). This
assumption takes to errors on the calculation of strain and strain rate values and consequently on Kro.
• In the calculations is also necessaries to consideran average diameter (working diameter) because
the height of the billet is not constant along the spread direction (Errors in Kwr and torque
calculation).
• Another factor to consider is the relative change of shape from the entry to the exit plane
(additional friction coefficient like for example in the Siebel's method).
• Also the determination of the contact area is much more complicated than in flat rolling and will
introduce uncertainties on the final calculation of the rolling force.

TEMPERATURE -115
THERMAL FACTORS
One of the most important factors in hot rolling is the temperature of the work piece.
Inaccurate estimation of the billet temperature along the rolling train takes to errors in
estimated rolling loads and in the final product requirements ( quality and metallurgical
properties).
A good calculation model of the rolling parameters must ha ve a good thermal model
The principal factors affecting heat balance and thus the temperature
of the rolling billet are:
-heat conduction inside the workpiece
-radiation loss to the surrounding medium
'
-heat conduction to the rolls
-heat gained by work done in mechanical deformation
-heat loss due to rolls and guides cooling water

The diagram that represents a
state of inhomogeneous
deformation is the
combination between the two
red dotted lines that
represents respective1y the
effect of the extema1 zones
and of the intema1 friction on
the ratio KjKm.
For a homogeneous
deformation the ratio is 1
(no friction and no shear
stresses and deformations).

Km: steel resistance at 20°C (function of % C)
f: friction coefficient ( ~ 1 / 3 )
Ct: corrective coefficient for the rolling temperature from diagrams
Notes
•A too much simplified method
• For the calculation of Km only carbon content is considered
• It doesn' t take into consideration the strain rate

Notes
• A complete formula but difficult to interpret
• With the n2 coefficient it takes into consideration the effect for low lctfhm ratios
• With the n3 coefficient it considers the tension effects
• For the calculation of Km it considers temperature and strain, but there is not a direct reference
to the strain rate effect
•The steel composition is characterised only by the %C content

Notes
•A formula difficult to interpret with a lot of corrective coefficients (introduced also
by other authors).
• For the calculation of KfO there is not a direct reference to strain, the strain rate is
considered into the plasticity terms, temperature is considered.
•The steel composition is characterised with a restricted number of chemical
elements.
•However despite these disadvantages, the Ekelund formula gives good results;
that' s why it is widely u sed.
