The ridging phenomenon of type 430 stainless-steel originates from the texture due to crystal plasticity anisotropy. Thus, to predict the antiridging property, we must continuously analyze the hot-rolling, hot-rolling and annealing, cold-rolling, cold-rolling and annealing textures. However, it has been previously difficult to analyze the recrystallization texture. We thus developed a model to predict the recrystallization texture coupled with the Taylor rolling model. Furthermore, the ridging index was calculated in order to estimate the plasticity in type 430 stainless-steels. The plasticity prediction method was applied to type 430 stainless-steel strips rolled at a low temperature with a high reduction rate in an actual tandem hot strip mill.
