Torsional shock phenomena in a large steel rolling mill are studied. Results of field measurements on a finishing stand are presented. An analytical model of rolling mill systems is outlined, and the predictions of this model are compared with torque measurements. Satisfactory agreement is obtained. Certain significant factors affecting stress level in a rolling mill are established, and some recommendations are made for improving the maintenance performance of a mill.
