Enter the roller torque (N-m) and the current radius of the roll (m) into the Taper Tension Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Taper Tension. 

Taper Tension Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Taper Tension.

TPT = T / r

Variables:

  • TPT is the Taper Tension (N)
  • T is the roller torque (N-m) 
  • r is the current radius of the roll (m) 

How to Calculate Taper Tension?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Taper Tension.


  1. First, determine the roller torque (N-m). 
  2. Next, determine the current radius of the roll (m). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TPT = T / r.
  4. Finally, calculate the Taper Tension.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

roller torque (N-m) = 100

current radius of the roll (m) = 3

TPT = T / r = ?
