Driven by the need for fast modelling of metal forming processes for use in closed-loop control, we investigate the advantages and drawbacks of analytical approaches as compared with standard finite element calculations, using rolling as an exemplar process. Three different analytical methods from the literature are compared with simulation results, and conclusions are drawn regarding their suitability for use in closed-loop control.
