This paper presents a study on defects in pearlite lamella structure of high carbon steel by means of finite-element method(FEM) simulation. High carbon pearlite steel wire is characterized by its nano-sized microstructure feature of alternation ferrite and cementite. FEM simulation was performed based on a suitable FE model describing the boundary conditions and the exact material behavior. Due to the lamella structure in high carbon pearlite steel wire, material plastic behavior was taken into account on deformation of ferrite and cementite. The effects of many important parameters(reduction in area, semi-die angle, lamella spacing, cementite thickness) on wire drawing process can be predicted by DEFORM-2D. It is possible to obtain the important basic data which can be guaranteed in the ductility of high carbon steel wire by using FEM simulation.
