  • Appreciate different approaches, including their inherent assumptions, that can be used to model plastic flow in metal forming operations.
  • Gain an insight into these approaches and how they can provide estimates of the necessary deformation loads for different metal forming operations.
  • Recognise the relative importance and limitations of the different approaches, ranging from simple work analyses to hodographs, and to become familiar with their use.
