The present effort in the study of the application of the visioplasticity method to the complete solution of forming problems was concentrated primarily on establishing workable computer methods. Two lines of approach were taken in processing the experimental data. These calculation methods were by the use of a finite difference method and by a mathematical formulation of flow. These methods will be described briefly in the present report, but we expect to give a full mathematical account of the methods in the next report and plan to append workable computer programs to that report. An attempt was made to compare potential flow with actual metal flow in plane strain to determine if the boundaries for potential flow could be adjusted in such a way that both the real and ideal flow fields are congruous.
