Manifested flatness defect prediction in cold rolling of thin strips

Abstract : Flatness defects in thin strip cold rolling are a consequence of roll thermo-elastic deformation, from which heterogeneous strip plastic deformation results. When flatness defects manifest on line, buckling reorganizes the stress field in the pre- and post-bite areas. Comparison with flatness roll measurement requires this effect to be taken into account. A coupled Finite Element Method (FEM) approach is used here to compute stresses and strains in-bite as well as out-of-bite. The detection of buckled (non-flat) areas is demonstrated for a very thin strip cold rolling case. The model is then applied here to two questions, namely the impact on flatness of the heterogeneous temperature field and the effect of friction on optimal setting of a flatness actuator, Work Roll Bending.
