A mathematical model for liquid lubricated strip rolling in the full-film regime is developed. The model combines slab plasticity, hydrodynamic lubrication and thermal analyses to relate local and global condition to process variables and material properties. The predictions of the model are compared with experimental measurements of outlet speed ratio, roll separating force and roll torque in rolling 1100-H14 aluminum with a viscous mineral oil and 5P4E polyphenyl ether as lubricants. The excellent agreement which is obtained provides powerful support of the validity of the model.
