    • Abstract

       

      A mathematical model has been developed for computing the geometrical dimensions of square-diamond square pass sequence for a continuous billet mill. The model is based on derivation of shape and size factor from the geometry of the pass taking into account pass filling, pass rounding etc. Using these factors and a basic equation of spread for flat rolling, a governing equation incorporating angle of diamond and reduction in consecutive passes has been formulated. Newton’s substitution method has been used to solve the equation. With known reduction between consecutive passes, geometrical dimension of square and diamond passes are computed. A model has been used to calculate pass design of a finishing train of a continuous billet mill producing 60 mm square billet from 120 mm square bloom. The elongation values have been optimized by varying the apex angle of diamond. A close agreement between computed and actual values shows the validity of the model.
