Abstract : As part of the Metalworking Processes and Equipment Program, information was collected on deformation characteristics of metals and their effect on processing operations. This report presents the information collected from technical engineering reports on Government contracts and from general engineering and metallurgical publications. The objective is to help the nonspecialist in recognizing the implications of scientific findings and in applying them in specific operations. This report contains a series of articles covering the following subjects: Theory of Plasticity; High-Velocity Forming; Work-Hardening Mechanisms in Metals; Shear Forming and Spinning of Metals; Friction and Wear in Metal-Deformation Processed; Rod, Wire, and Tube Drawing; and Applications of Static High Pressure to the Forming of Metals-Hydrostatic Extrusion. These subjects are treated in two ways: (1) generalized discussions of common processes point out why specific variables must be modified in order to deform certain types of metals satisfactorily; and (2) data on the more difficult-to-form metals are used to illustrate the principles, limitations, and effects of the processes.
