Summary: Australian steel manufacturing industry is an international leader in advancing technologies and improving quality and productivity. Annual steel exports generate about two billion dollars in national income and are still growing. The market for rolled strip products is intensely competitive, and continued success is critically dependent on productivity and quality. This project aims to develop comprehensive dynamic models for stability and transient analysis of self-excited chatter of multi-stand flat cold rolling mills under a wide range of operating conditions. It will assist Australian steel manufacturers in understanding and controlling chatter of rolling mills, and improving quality and preventing production from breakdowns.'',
