Several press forgings were made and it was found that the experimental mean forging pressures were in substantial agreement with values predicted by theoretical solutions based on an approximate theory. The forging processes were axial symmetric forging of disks between flat dies and forging in closed dies with several edge effects, such as overhanging flash, with and without flash-edge restriction. The materials were commerically pure aluminum and lead and were chosen because of their respective work-hardening and strain-rate effects at room temperature. It was found further that the local pressures measured in the forging were in good agreement with the theory, but that some local plastic flow tends to equalize the pressure in the body of the forging.
