The main objective of this research is to analyze the variation of minimum film thickness in the inlet zone of roll-strip interface by incorporating starvation and viscous shear heating effects at high rolling speeds (520ms), reduction ratios (0.05–0.20), and slip values (varying up to 20%). An additional objective of this paper is to develop empirical relations for predictions of minimum film thicknesses (both isothermal and thermal) and maximum film temperature rise in the inlet zone of the lubricated roll strip contact as functions of roll-speed, reduction ratio, material parameter, slip, and starvation parameter. An efficient numerical method based on Lobatto quadrature technique is adopted for rigorous analysis of the present problem. The results reveal that the existence of starvation seems to be beneficial in terms of reduction in maximum film temperature rise as well as reduction in quantity of oil required for lubrication provided thin continuous film exists at the contact.
