Time: 3 hours Max Marks: 80

Answer any FIVE Questions

All Questions carry equal marks


1. Write short notes on the following:

(a) Yield locus

(b) Levy-Mises equations(Flow rules). [8+8]


2. (a) What is hot working? Is it possible to have hot working of metals at room

temperature? How? Explain with suitable examples.

(b) Assume that a tapered piece of copper has been stressed in tension beyond its

yield point and then annealed. Explain how the grain size will change along

the taper. [8+8]


3. Define hot working, warm working and cold working.Discuss the relative features

of hot work and cold work for Al, Pt and Molybdenum considering melting point,

brittleness and oxidation behaviour. [16]


4. Explain the following:

(a) Compound die

(b) Combination die

(c) Progressive die

(d) Transfer die. [4×4]


5. (a) What is Forging? Describe various types of forging dies.

(b) Sketch and describe counter flow forging hammer.

(c) Discuss the advantages and limitations of forging process. [7+4+5]


6. (a) Maximum draft in rolling is decided by coefficient of friction. Explain.

(b) Define Torue and power required for rolling. Describe how they can be esti-


(c) Calculate the rolling load if steel sheet is hot rolled 30 percent from a 40mm-

thick slab using a 900 mm-diameter roll. The slab is 760 mm wide. Assume

? = 0.30. The plane-strain flow stress is 140 Mpa at entrance and 200 Mpa

at the exit from the roll gap due to the increasing velocity. [5+6+5]


7. (a) Describe the common extrusion equipment and basic elements of an extrusion


(b) Briefly explain the deformation and flow of metal during extrusion. [10+6]


8. Discuss the following: [8+8]

(a) Production of tubes and seamless pipes.

(b) Rod and wire drawing processes.
