Abstract:
Smorgon Steel, in conjunction with Deakin University, has undertaken a research program to model the hot rolling process for microalloyed dbar coil and mesh grade rod to optimise the performance of reinforcing steel. As part of the collaborative research, a physical model is being developed to determine the mechanical properties from the chemistry and grain size of hot rolled rod. The physical properties being modelled include Yield Strength (YS), TensileStrength (TS) and ductility. The project also investigates the effect of cold working low carbon steel rod, prior to mesh making, on the resulting mechanical properties of the finished product. This paper details results from the early stages of the project.
