In modern high speed cold rolling mills, variations of process parameters, such as the inlet strip thickness, strip tension, lubrication condition in the roll bite or gage setting of the rolling stand, influence the quality of the product. To understand the relationship between the process conditions and the strip shape produced, a model which combines the slab method for the strip, with finite element and modal analysis for the roll is developed for determining the strip shape dynamics during high speed cold rolling. Results of the present analysis indicate that significant effects on the strip shape may originate from variations of the contact pressure distribution in the roll bite.
