    It happened just like the diagram. I've had this happen before, always does it when there is a weak vertical weld near the middle. It can usually be prevented by arc welding the end before it is rolled.

    Thanks son

    Interesting pic, thanks!


    purely out of curiosity...."Inhomogeneities?" why not "heterogeneities?"

    Because they are not equally distributed.

    @Larrin, I don't quite understand the explanation. There's not much width growth while rolling. The strain seems to be because the center stays hotter longer and grows faster than the edges causing it to split like it did. In diagram (a) it shows the strain opposite from my experience.

    Most of my rolling is with non ferrous metals, butt I see quite a bit of width growth when rolling.

    Before I rolled it, it measured 4" x 7 1/2", after rolling it measured 4" x 9 1/2" not counting the split. There was no detectable growth in width as apposed to ~22% in length.

    Typically there is little increase in the width in rolling. Oftentimes it is zero. With thick pieces you can have spreading, however.

    The reason that the ends of the bar are round is because the center lengthens more than the edges. This is from more than the just the center staying hot, it's related to the "friction hill" that is mentioned in the section I posted. This difference creates the tension in the edges.

    I was hoping there would be an interesting answer...but I didn't understand it. inhomogeneity = evenly distributed differences and heterogeneity = non-evenly distributed differences?
