Abstract: Mandrel is the critical part of the rolling mill operation. Mandrel consists of several components which sometimes encounter unfortunate failures. These components include wedge, mandrel shaft, pull rod or segments. In this thesis design and optimization of wedge and mandrel shaft is carried out. To design the wedge there is need to calculate which the governing parameter while designing of wedge is the 3D modeling and simulation of the wedge is carried out using solid works software. The study also includes the optimization of the shaft. As the mandrel shaft was failed during working so there is need to optimize that shaft. The cause of failure of mandrel shaft was due to fatigue failure. So first of all fatigue failure analysis of shaft is done. For fatigue failure analysis the S-N curve has been created by considering various endurance limit and endurance limit correcting factors. Further study shows that the shaft was susceptible to the fatigue so it needs optimization. By considering various values of the fillet radius optimization is carried out. The shaft is then modeled and simulated in the Ansys v 12.
