Summary The thesis describes the development of a model of the cold forging process that accurately predicts the initiation of ductile fracture. The effect of the deformation history of the material during multiple forming operations is considered. Both two- and three-dimensional numerical models of the forging process were combined with a ductile fracture criterion to predict the material ductility and damage distribution in the workpiece.
