The process of strip rolling is analyzed using the upper bound technique. Two triangular velocity fields, one with triangles in linear rigid body motion and the other with triangles in rotational rigid body motion, are developed. The total power is determined as a function of the four independent process parameters (relative thickness, reduction, friction and net front-back tension). The results of these two velocity fields are compared with the established solution from Avitzur’s velocity field of continuous deformation. Upon establishing the validity of the triangular velocity field as an approach to the strip rolling problem, recommendations are suggested on how this approach can be used to study the split end or alligatoring defect.
