Proper roll cooling has been identified as a critical factor in the problems of excessive roll spalling and poor thermal crowning in modern, high-speed rolling mills. In this paper, an analytical model has been developed to determine the temperature profiles of the roll and the strip. This model uses basic heat transfer theory and provides the capability of studying the influence of operating parameters on both the work-roll and workpiece temperatures. Examples on cold and hot rolling of aluminum alloys are given to demonstrate the feasibility and capability of the model developed. Previous work on thermal modeling of rolling processes is also briefly reviewed.
