Accurate prediction of the onset of chatter is difficult in designing and operating a rolling mill. Both the lack of precise rolling process models and analytical methods for the investigation of mill stability have forced designers and users to rely on experience and trial and error, which are time consuming and cost demanding. A comprehensive rolling process model is introduced to form the foundation of chatter analysis that includes a range of possible process variations. Analytical chatter models for both single and multiple- stand rolling mills are constructed that account for interactions between mill structure and rolling process, as well as between adjacent stands. Stability analysis is performed to formulate criteria for rolling mill design and operation. Finally, simulations and experiments are presented to verify some basic components of the rolling process model that constitute the proposed chatter models.
