The article considers the numerical estimate of the possibility of using of asymmetric sheet rolling process as a method of severe plastic deformation to produce ultra-fine structures of the metal. It is shown that during asymmetric rolling the material has higher shear deformation than during symmetric rolling.


Asymmetric rolling, the limiting case of asymmetry, differences in rotational speed of the work rolls, shear strain, severe plastic deformation, finite element modeling.
