69 Neural Network Approach for the Prediction of Void Closure in Cold Rolling Process
Download citation file:
Cold rolling is used to eliminate void defects in cast materials, thus improving the material performance during service. A comprehensive procedure is developed using finite element analysis and neural network to predict the degree of void closure. A three-dimensional nonlinear dynamic finite element model is used to study the mechanism of void deformation. Experiments were conducted and the results are compared to finite element predictions to validate the model. As finite element simulation is time-consuming, a back-propagation neural network model is developed to predict void closure behavior. Based on correlation analysis, the reduction in sheet thickness, the dimension of the...
