The ‘Intelligent strip rolling and mechanical behavior control of rolling mill’ Research Group is founded by Professor Chen Xianlin (Academician, Chinese Academy of Engineering). There are 1 professor (Qingdong Zhang, winner of National Youth Science and Technology Award, enjoy special national government allowance, doctoral supervisors), 2 associate professors (Dazhi Zhang, Liyuan Zhang) and 1 lecturer (Boyang Zhang) in our group. There are 16 postgraduate students and 5 doctoral students studying and working in the team currently. Our group undertakes 7 undergraduate courses and 2 postgraduate courses, and supervise 20 undergraduate graduation projects every year. In recent years, under the cultivation of 7 National Natural Science Funds, 1 National Science and technology support plan, 1 key R & D plan, 1 special development project of intelligent manufacturing equipment, and 2 equipment pre research projects of the Ministry of education, our group has made in-depth and detailed research work on the surface quality of sheet and strip steel, metal rolling theory, plastic forming, plate and strip rolling control, etc. Our group has also actively expanded new research fields and made remarkable progress in intelligent manufacturing, additive manufacturing, intelligent assembly, design principle and application of variable mechanical structure, etc. Our group has won 1 first prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award, 2 first prizes of Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, 2 second prizes of Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, and 1 third prize of Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award. Our group has established a series of cooperation with well-known research institutes at home and abroad.
