An analytical model for the hydrodynamic lubrication of high speed strip rolling is developed. The model includes the effect of thermal loading due to back flow and slip on the film formation process. The work zone analysis takes account of thermal effects on film thickness and friction. The influence of geometry, speed and lubricant and work-piece properties on the forward slip, roll load and torque are described in detail and compared with previously published experimental data.
