Abstract
Background
The cylindrical profile model (CPM) is commonly used to convert the load–displacement measurement from the axis-symmetric compression test (ACT) to the flow curve. The model ignores the barrelling of the sample which results in serious flow curve distortion and underestimation of the effective stress and strain. To minimize these, a new solution of ACT with heterogeneous deformation is proposed in this work as an alternative to CPM.

Method
Representative point is introduced in this new approach for better utilization of the new solution. Some key attributes of a typical flow curve are also considered to explore the sensitivity of the identified flow curve to the heterogeneous deformation. Sample flow curves are identified based on the new solution and compared with that of CPM.

Results
It was found that CPM underestimates the maximum effective stress, strain and strain rate. Significant deviations were found between the reference flow curves and those of CPM. The model is unable to appropriately account for the rate-dependent behaviour of material and work hardening variations in the samples. Therefore, given its non-realistic homogeneous effective strain and strain rate in the sample, the CPM based flow curves are questionable. The new ACT solution provided more reliable flow curves than those of the CPM.

Conclusions
Considering the heterogeneous deformation at the centre of the sample, the new ACT solution provided flow curves that for strains bellow 0.4 closely resemble the reference curves obtained from the finite element model. Thus, the new ACT solution reduces the serious limitations of CPM and provides less error in the study of the hot deformation phenomena (e.g. recovery and recrystallization). Further recommendations were also given to limit the deviations in the identified flow curve.
