With the publication of this book, newcomers to the field of steel rolling have a complete introductionto the cold rolling process, including the history of cold rolling, the equipment currentlyin use, the behavior of the rolling lubricant, the thermal and metallurgical aspects of the subject,mathematical models relating to rolling force and power requirements, strip shape, and thefurth er processing of cold-rolled steel. The first book in print to examine in detail the three componentsof the cold-rolling process- the mill, the work-piece, and the rolling lubricant-this bookcan be used as a training manual and as a source for reference and research. The manuscript version of this book has already been in use as a textbookin courses on cold rolling and rolling lubrication and is now published for thebenefit of all in-training personnel-both operating and supervisory-in theprimary metals industry and for undergraduate and graduate students inmetalworking. The interrelationships of the three components, described in terms ofmathematical models, are of considerable value to engineers associated withprimary metals and metal research, to mill builders, and to electrical equipmentsuppliers. For plant metallurgists, the book relates product quality to operating conditions;for the steel user and purchaser, it affords insight into the variousprocesses associated with the manufacture of steel sheet and strip.
