Sequence design for shape-rolling processes consists of roll pass and profile design, i.e., transforming the billet into a final shape. For the prediction of the mean effective strain of the workpiece during rod rolling, an analytical model by Shinokura and Takai was used. They verified the formula by applying it to a variety of rod-rolling geometries (oval-square, oval-round, square diamond, and diamond-diamond). Today, on the other hand, the finite element (FE) techniques allow analysis of… 
Prediction of geometrical profile in slit rolling pass
In the shape rolling process, the reduction of the number of passes is a challenging topic for the steel industry. This can be achieved by enhancing the design approach or by developing new rolling

Finite element simulation of three‐dimensional deformation in shape rolling
A method for simulating three-dimensional steady-state deformation in shape rolling with grooved rolls by the rigid-plastic finite element method is proposed. For the three-dimensional element mesh,
Spreadsheet modelling of grain size evolution during rod rolling
An analysis was conducted of the pass-by-pass evoution of austenite grain size during the rod rolling of plain carbon steel. This was achieved by organizing previously-developed equations relating
