The program covered the following specific areas a flow stresses of metals, b instrumentation of forging presses, c evaluation and comparison of screw presses and mechanical presses for forging, d uniform compression tests and ring tests for determining the flow stress of metals, and e methods for predicting and measuring forging load under production conditions. It is expected that the information developed in this program will contribute to the improvement in the design and execution of forging operations.
