Abstract : As part of the Materials Processes and Equipment program, information was collected on deformation characteristics of metals and their effect on processing operations. Technical engineering reports on Government contracts and general engineering and metallurgical publications were the major sources consulted. The results of the work were summarized in a series of articles covering subjects considered to be of major interest and importance. The objective was to help the nonspecialist in recognizing the implications of scientific findings and in applying them in specific operations. This report covers the following subjects: Ductile Fracture; Application of High Pressure to the Forming of Brittle Metals; Superplasticity; Lubrication in Metal-Deformation Processes; Swaging; Adiabatic Conditions in Deformation Processing; and Residual Stresses Produced by Deformation.
