Edge cracking is a commonly observed phenomenon during the cold rolling process of the silicon steel strip which may cause the rupture of strip and reduce the product quality and productivity. In this work, the damage behavior and edge cracking of steel strip in cold rolling is analyzed based on a shear modified Gurson model. Taguchi experimental design method is used to analyze the effects of reduction ratio, roll diameter, tension, friction coefficient on the initiation and propagation of
