Aluminium Rolling has a very short history of about two centuries. The technology of rolling has matured and stabilized in the last decade or so, with sophistications resulting in higher degree of refinement and richness of final product. Aluminium Rolling: Processes, Principles & Applications seeks to fill a perceived gap in published information available, which addresses both the theory and practice of aluminium rolling in a comprehensive manner. Although primarily focused on rolling, the book takes a much broader view, covering the entire production processes from ore to finished sheet, plate or foil product. The author uses an analytical approach throughout the book and discusses various important aspects of the subject like Cold Rolling, Hot Rolling, Foil Rolling, Quality Control and Technical Extensions. The book will be useful to industrial professionals in production and marketing of aluminium finished products. It will also be helpful to the professional institutions and university students who will find a good base to work further in this field. TABLE OF CONTENTS SECTION - I 1.
