Calculation of microstructure and final mechanical properties of hot rolled bars and wire

DLPP Software

Main window and the dialog for entering parameters of STELMOR cooling conveyor at the wire rolling continuous mill

DLPP software enables:

  • »hot rolled steel bars and wire mechanical properties calculation for various mill configurations and different rolling and cooling technologies
  • »calculation of microstructure evolution during rolling (austenitic grain size, recrystallization, residual strain, carbides and nitrides precipitation)
  • »calculation of secondary structure components after the deformed austenite decomposition (ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite percentage)
  • »bars and wire final mechanical properties calculation (HV/HB hardness, yield stress, tensile strength)

Calculation simulation results example

Steel groups supported by DLPP software:

  • »carbon medium alloyed steels – carbon content from 0.06% to 0.5% with alloying elements total amount up to 10%
  • »low carbon microalloyed steels – carbon content from 0.06% to 0.4% on condition that Nb + Ti > 0
  • »low-alloy tool steels – carbon content from 0.5% to 1.8% with alloying elements total amount up to 5% if carbon content is less than 1.2% or with alloying elements total amount up to 3% if carbon content is more than 1.2%
  • »ultra low carbon steels – carbon content from 0.001% to 0.06%
