This paper provides results of an analytical and computer investigation to determine the numerical coefficients involved in the roll-force and roll-torque equations pertaining to a single stand in a multistand, tandem, steel rolling mill. To the authors’ knowledge, such information has not appeared in the literature to date. The coefficients for a typical hot mill are compared with those obtained for a typical cold mill. The principles of gage control are discussed. The theories on flat-strip rolling are reviewed briefly.
