In a rolling mill the main components are deforming rolls, roll bearings and roll bearing housings. When the rolling is in process the reactive forces exerted by the rolls is transmitted to the bearings and simultaneously to the bearing housings. The bearing housing is also known as roll chock. In a rolling mill, the roll chock is a vital component since slight deformation of the chock body will result in defects in the products being rolled. This problem can be solved using CAE tools. A rolling mill chock made up of gray cast iron was selected and its 3D CAD modelling was done using ANSYS SPACECLAIM software to perform the static structural analysis under specified bearing loading condition and the results for maximum principal stress and equivalent stress were obtained using ANSYS 2021 software.
