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)

To calculate the taper tension, divide the roller torque by the current radius of the roll.

## How to Calculate Taper Tension?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Taper Tension.

- First, determine the roller torque (N-m).
- Next, determine the current radius of the roll (m).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TPT = T / r.
- Finally, calculate the Taper Tension.
- 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** **= ?
