Abstract : The government Metalworking Processes and Equipment Program is a cooperative effort of the Military Services and National Aeronautics and Space Administration to support studies of deformation theory which will lead to the improvement of manufacturing technology. At the request of the Department of Defense the Materials Advisory Board Committee on Metalworking Processes and Equipment is assisting in the planning and technical phases of the program. The committee has assessed the potential of vibrational energy technology and hydrostatic extrusion which were the subjects of recent government-sponsored symposia, and have submitted conclusions and recommendations as to the value and limitations of these processes and the manner in which the development of each should be undertaken. A study of superplasticity phenomena was initiated by the Committee. (Author)
