Multi-Stage Rolling Mill Process, Part 2: Tension Modeling and Simulation

From the series: Simulating a Multi-Stage Rolling Mill Process

Parasar Kodati, MathWorks

This is the second webinar of a three-part webinar series that will highlight the use of MathWorks products for modeling and control of a multi-stage rolling mill process. In this particular webinar you will learn how to use MathWorks products to model the looper-strip interaction for tension control. You will learn how to translate a physical description of strip tension into Simulink blocks and a Simulink model. You can also see how a multi-stage rolling process can be simulated in the Simulink environment by re-using single stage library blocks. Through product demonstrations, MathWorks engineers will show how you can:

  • Estimate strip tension based on the looper-strip interaction
  • Model a multi-stage rolling mill process
  • Implement a simple supervisory controller for a multi-stage rolling mill

Product Focus

  • SimMechanics
  • Simulink
