Designing roll calibers and roll passes is a complex process that requires highly experienced process designers. The main challenge is to design a process that achieves the desired final profile shape while staying within the machine's capabilities. A standard approach to support the process designers is the application of the 3D FE simulations. SMS R&D develops an alternative to conventional models based on the Finite-Element-Method and Python. In order to extend the model’s capabilities to capture a large variety of rolling problems, such as multi-pass rolling, its’ underlying code requires further extensions and thorough testing. The generated results need to be validated using experimental data.
