In this work, a mathematical model has been developed to predict distributions of temperature, strain and strain rate during hot rolling as well as the subsequent microstructural changes after hot deformation. For doing so, a 2-D finite element analysis together with a stream function method have been coupled to calculate temperature distribution and velocity field within the rolling metal while the roll force has been estimated, through using an upper bound solution. Also the additivity rule and Avrami-type equation have been employed to predict the kinetics of static recrystallization after hot rolling. The model has been examined on AA5083. Hot rolling experiments have been conducted under various hot deformation conditions. Comparison between the theoretical results and the experimental data shows the validity of the model.
