Using supercomputers to optimize hot rolling for the steels of tomorrow

November 9, 2021

In a project with U.S. Steel, LLNL computational physicists built models of the hot-rolling process to run on LLNL’s HPC platforms. The models track the steel from reheat-furnace dropout through the subsequent steps of rolling, cooling on the runout table, coiling and, finally, post-rolling cooling.
