adaption of the model predictions is highly desirable. In general, the width deviation at the head and tail ends of strip may be different from that of the steady state region. Therefore, the dynamic edger corrections can be used to compensate the width deviations which would otherwise occur. For the precise width control, the effect of edger roll gap and rolling conditions on the width deviation of head and tail ends of strip has been investigated and the effective method to decrease width deviation has been proposed. On-line application of dynamic edger control method in this study shows about 50% width compensation at the head end of the strip, and near perfect compensation at the tail end of strip.
