This paper considers the effect of web slip over the rollers on the span tension dynamics. In classical development of the web span tension dynamics, it is assumed that there is strict adhesion between the web and the surface of the roller and thus, there is no slip-page between the web and the roller. As a result of this assumption, effect of tension disturbances in downstream spans on the upstream span tension is precluded. However, in practice, perfect adhesion between the web and roller surface is seldom achieved and tension disturbances propagate upstream also. Though web span tension dynamic models that include slippage between web and roller are proposed, these models rely to a great extent on numerical computation of slip arc angles and are prohibitively complex to be of practical use. This paper proposes an alternative, simple approach for developing web span tension dynamics to include the effect of web slip.
