Deep Cold Rolling (DCR) is a cost effective mechanical surface enhancement process where one or more rollers/ball rolls over the machined surface under high pressure, plasticizing the material’s top layer. Deep rolling is extensively used in aerospace and automobile industries to enhance the fatigue life of components. In the present work, 2D explicit dynamic analysis to simulate deep cold rolling of shafts is carried out using ANSYS/LS DYNA. Effect of significant parameters (ball diameter, rolling force, surface roughness and no of passes) on compressive residual stress generated and depth of compressive residual stress state inside the work piece surface are studied. AISI 4140 STEEL is chosen for work piece material and Tungsten Carbide for tool material. From the 2D simulations compressive residual stress results data are obtained. It is concluded that rolling force and surface roughness have the most significant effect on the compressive residual stresses and depth of compressive residual stress state. The results of the 2D explicit dynamic simulations are also verified with experimental results and both are in good agreement.
