This report describes research on the control of temperatures across the section of a rolled product, when complete thermomechanical treatments are carried out in the heat of rolling. There is a need for rapid heating and cooling techniques to obtain optimal thermal and mechanical pathways. Theoretical and experimental approaches are described, which facilitate the conception and dimensioning of cooling equipment in the rolling mill (for bars and sections). Industrial trials illustrate possible practical applications of the results obtained. Ways of applying induction heating in the rolling mill are described; a variety of possible technical solutions and potential applications are examined. The advantages of a transverse flux technique for heating rounds and square-section billets are demonstrated. The use of mathematical models allows an adequate study of installations based on transverse flux for heating bloom corners and sections (H-beams).
