Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Metal forming has for many years maintained its position as the most efficient method of shaping metals and alloys. The possibility of controlling the properties of final products by careful control of the condition of deformation is now the principal advantage of metal forming which makes this technique competitive. Therefore, metal forming continues to be an important industrial process attracting the interest of scientists and researchers throughout the world.
