The purpose of the research programme has been to study various theoretical aspects of the roller straightening process, as applied to asymmetric sections, supported where necessary by laboratory and plant trials to provide any basic material property information required and to establish the validity of process models developed. An increased understanding of both the section deformation processes involved and influence of various controlling factors on the straightening process should provide a more rational basis for the setting up of straightening machines for improvements in finished product quality and process efficiency.
