Uncoated, electrolytically coated and hot-dip galvanised thin sheet grades are high-value added products of great importance in the steel industry. Despite the excellent level of knowledge about soft thin sheet grades based on aluminium-killed low or extra low carbon and interstice-free composition, there is still an additional demand for improvement of the mechanical properties and reduction of the variations in the mechanical properties, both over strip length and width as well as with respect to variations from coil to coil. A very promising way is rigorous modelling based on physical metallurgical models. In the past, such models were successfully developed for the hot rolling process.
