This simulation follows research conducted at The University of Toledo on single roll burnishing. A couple of FEM models using a commercial software have been developed for investigating stress and strain distribution within the workpiece material. Based on the data collected and analyzed from both a simulated and experimental indentation, adjustment of the initial surface of roll was performed, so that to correspond to the final shape of the real roll when the nominal load is reached. Finally, the burnishing process is simulated and some results are shown. The model developed in this paper could be used to predict stress and strain distribution in the workpiece material.
