Today, the rolled products, i.e. sheet, plate and foil is used in marine applications, including platforms, hatch covers, mast, hulls of boats and superstructures on pleasure boats and the bridges and superstructures of passenger ships and merchant ships. In this paper, simulation of asymmetric cold rolling is presented by using explicit analysis procedure. In asymmetric cold rolling, the workpiese if often bent downwards or upwards. A two dimensional explicit dynamic finite element model with adaptive meshing technique has been employed to simulate asymmetrical condition are here due to different roll radii. To validate the simulation, the results of simulation and experiment are compared. Effects of asymmetry due to roll radii ratio and speed ratio mismatch on sheet curvature variations are discussed. Finally, optimum roll speed ratio in various of roll radii ratio could be found to produce flat sheet.
