Résumé : 

In this paper, a calculation technique for solving the problem of regulatinginter-stand tension in a tandem cold rolling is proposed. Based on the slicesmethod, the proposed technique develops a computational model for a singlestand, and then generalizes it for five stands. The effectiveness of this technique is evaluated using experimental data acquired from tandem rolling millof IMittal steel complex of El-Hadjar-Algeria. By taking into account theelasticity of the rolls and using Newton’s method; the developed model can beused to calculate, successfully, the tensions correction of the five stands.Compared with the LAM3 software, the obtained results indicated that theproposed technique is effective and can be used to produce better performance of tandem cold rolling.
