Industrial rolling of aluminum is a multi-step process involving numerous reductions under hot and cold temperatures with varying deformation speeds to achieve the final gauge and microstructure. This study looks at the effect of changing the temperature and strain rates for AA3104 aluminum through plane strain compression via the Gleeble Hydrawedge II. It makes use of FEA simulations to validate the strain distribution after deformation and evaluates how the resulting flow stress, developed texture, and microstructure compare to the expected industrial version. The flow stress and texture data acquired are used for calibration of an ICME model describing the microstructure and properties of the entire rolling process for AA3104 aluminum.
