An Advanced Strip Flatness Forecast and Simulation System for Hot Tandem Mill
Taken hot tandem mill as research object, based on complete flatness control theary, in order to improve flatness control technology, an advanced strip flatness forecast and simulation system for hot tandem mill is developed through theoretical analysis, mathematical modeling, computer simulation and industrial validation. The simulation system’s outputs include flatness, on-load roll gap, rolling force distribution, contact pressure between rolls, strip’s temperature evolution, thermal roll shape and roll wear shape, which can be applied to mill type selection, flatness control performance analysis, preset control, roll shape optimization, virtual rolling, and so on. The simulation system can provide research and development platform for flatness control technology’ improvement and independent innovation, and has important significance to improve the flatness control level of hot tandem mill.
