Abstract : The government Metalworking Processes and Equipment Program is a coordinated effort of the Army, Navy, Air Force and NASA towards the identification of salient factors which limit progress in metal deformation processes and shape the course of research sponsorship. At the request of the Department of Defense, the Materials Advisory Board Committee on Metalworking Processes and Equipment has been organized to provide technical guidance to the program. During the period from November, 1964 to March, 1965, covered in this report, the committee has reviewed the state of knowledge of several aspects of metal processing: Ductile Fracture, The application of Computers to Deformation Processing, Heat Transfer in Metalworking Processes, Crysta Mechanics, The Function of Continuum Mechanics in the Analysis and Design of Metalworking Processes Recommendations for action are proposed.
