In this paper, a ring rolling process is analysed by the Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) finite element method. Phenomena associated with the process, such as large deformations, elastoplastic material behaviour and the friction on the interface, are included in the analysis. Special modelling on driven, idle and guide rolls is given. Results which include the overall shape of the formed ring, the time histories of roll separating force and driving torque, the distribution of the normal pressure on the ring–roll interface as well as the distribution of effective stresses in the formed ring, are also presented.
