30Cr2Ni4MoV is widely used as heavy forging materials for low pressure rotors which equips the ultra-supercritical power generations. The final properties of the heavy forging products relies apparently on the grain size of the material, so that the grain should be refined and homogenized during forming process through controlling the working parameters during forming process. For this purpose, the research on the modeling and simulation of austenite grain evolution is conducted for different forming stages: the grain growth during heating, dynamic recrystallization (DRX) during hitting, and meta-dynamic (MDRX) and static recrystallization (SRX) during hitting intervals. Experiment-based phenomenological models, as easy ways to characterize the grain evolution, are established for the process of heating and single-hit, while the Cellular Automaton simulations are applied for tracing more complex recrystallization process during multi-hit deformations. The research shows that, for heavy forgings, the long-time heating process can cause very coarse grains which are harmful to the final properties. Therefore, in order to refine and homogenize the grain size for the heavy forgings, the working parameters for forging should be determined to ensure the recrystallization can be completed and the deformation can be uniformly distributed. Some applications of the models and simulation method in multi-hit process are also demonstrated.
