Wall ironing has been analyzed using an elastic-plastic finite element technique. The effects that the ironing ring semi-cone angle and friction have on the maximum reduction ratio are studied in detail. Stress contours are given for a typical set of operating parameters. Several ram load/displacement curves are provided and compared with upper and lower bound loads.
