Strip shape analysis of asymmetrical cold rolling of thin strip
Strip shape control during cold rolling of thin strip is a challenge in rolling practice. In the paper, finite element model of strip shape during cold rolling of thin strip in asymmetrical rolling case was successfully developed, and the strip shape such as the thickness distribution along the strip width have been obtained. The developed finite element model has been verified with the experimental value, which shows they are in good agreement. The obtained results are applicable to control the rolled thin strip shape in practice.
