FACULTI OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING UNIVERSITI MALAYSIA PAHANG BMM3643 (Sem I 2012/13) Assignment #2 1. a ) What are the reasons why the bulk deformation processes are important commercially and technologically? (6 marks) b ) Discuss why friction is one major consideration in bulk deformation processes. Explain how lubricant can improve proces performance. List minimum 4 types of lubricants used in bulk forming processes. (6 marks) Answer a ) Bulk deformation processes are important because; i) they are capable of significant shape change when hot working is used, ii) they have a positive effect on part strength when cold working is used, iii) most of the processes produce little material waste; some are net shape processes. b) Metal forming processes are characteristic of high pressures between two contacting surfaces. In hot forming processes these high pressures are accompanied by extreme temperatures. For these reasons friction is a serious consideration in metal forming processes. A certain amount of friction will be necessary for some forming processes, but excessive friction is always undesirable. Friction increases the amount of force required to perform an operation, causes wear on tooling, and can effect metal flow creating defects in the work. Where friction is involve lubricants can usually help. For some processes and materials no lubrication is used, but for many lubrication is applied to contacting surfaces to reduce friction forces. Lubricants used in industry are different depending upon the type of process, the temperature

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
