A cold rolling model taking into account mixed lubrication regime has been developed and included into a simulation software named MetaLub. The main objective is to enhance the performances of rolling mills from a lubrication point of view. It means that lubricant rheology but also roll diameters and roughness, etc., can be optimised to improve stability and efficiency of the rolling tool. The main features of MetaLub, are briefly presented in this paper. Then, two studies of the influence of rolling speed and negative forward slip are discussed. The obtained numerical results are presented and compared to some experimental data from literature and from ArcelorMittal facilities in order to validate the model and to show its capacity to understand and help to improve industrial rolling conditions.
