    Learning Objectives

    • Be aware of major deformation processes and the ways in which they are used to form metallic objects:
      • Rolling
      • Extrusion
      • Forging
      • Drawing
    • Appreciate the advantages and disadvantages of each.
    • Understand the reasons for selecting a process for a particular shape of end product.

    Before you start

    A basic understanding of plastic deformation (including work hardening) is assumed and can be found in the Introduction to Mechanical Testing TLP.
