## Plane Strain Compression and Forging Process of Metals | Metallurgy

In this article we will discuss about how to analyze plain strain compression in forging process of metals. Compression with Coulomb Friction: In slab method of analysis it is assumed that plane sections before the deformation remain plane during deformation. The non-uniformity in metal flow as described above is not taken into account. Nevertheless, the method is highly useful because [...]

## Compression of Circular Disc in Forging Operations of Metals | Metallurgy

In this article we will discuss about how to analyze compression of circular disc in forging operations of metals. Equilibrium Equation with Slab Method: In this method it is assumed that plane sections remain plane during compression and any non-uniformity in deformation is neglected. Also it is assumed that the material is rigid perfectly plastic and effects of strain hardening [...]

## Upper Bound Solutions in Forging of Metals | Metallurgy

Many researchers have made use of Upper-bound theorem for solution of forging, extrusion, wire and tube drawing etc. In forging alone there are a large number of papers. It is not possible to describe all of them, it is rather difficult even to give references of all of them. Here we mention a few fundamental ones only. Avitzur has given [...]

## Forging of Metals: 5 Types | Metallurgy

The forging processes may be classified into following types: 1. Open Die Forging 2. Closed Die Forging 3. Impression Die Forging 4. Upsetting and Swaging 5. Rotary Swaging. 1. Open Die Forging: In open die forging, the work piece is deformed between two flat or simple-curved dies. There is free flow of material in the lateral direction. The only hindrance [...]

## Design of Forging Hammers (With Diagram) | Metals | Industries | Metallurgy

Forging hammers are commonly used for impression-die forging and can be used for a variety of forging operations. In forging hammers a heavy ram containing the upper die is lifted by steam pressure or air pressure, then driven or allowed to fall on the workpiece which is placed on the bottom die, which in turn is supported on the anvil. [...]

## Design Considerations in Forging | Metals | Industries | Metallurgy

In this article we will discuss about the general design consideration in forging of metals. Factors Influencing the Design of a Forging: The various factors which require due consideration and which influence the design of a forging are: (i) Shape and size, (ii) Grade and composition of metal, (iii) Quantity required, (iv) Subsequent processing and heat-treatment, and (v) End use.
