A series solution for the two-dimensional, steady-state temperature distribution in a rotating cylinder, subject to surface heating flux conditions that are at most linear functions of the surface temperature, is applied to strip rolling. An examination of the influence of heat input over the heating region (roll gap) on the peak cylinder (roll) temperature is made. A strip scale layer (which is present in hot rolling) is shown to have a significant effect on roll temperatures through its modification of the heat transfer between strip and roll. The present results indicate that significant errors will arise in estimating the peak roll temperature if insufficient terms are used or if the heat distribution is taken to be uniform in the heating region.
