Final report on Contract No 7210-PR/090, 1 July 1998 to 30 June 2001.

Roll degradation is one of the most important determinants of the quality of hot-rolled products. The knowledge of new techniques to control and measure the evolution of work rolls by the use of new cooling systems is extremely important. This project worked in the three main areas for control: models of the evolution of the roll, measurement online of the state of the system and innovative control loops, with the integration of rules and knowledge acquired from the analysis of the information obtained during the project. Interesting results were obtained in the three control aspects.
