i. Dislocation climb

ii. Cross slip

iii. Jogs in dislocation

iv. Perfect and partial dislocation


3. (a) Explain the process of bending operation? Discuss various types of bending with neat sketches.

(b) How can spring back be offset? Explain the factors influencing spring back. What is its application and relative merits.


4. (a) Sketch and explain the working of a Compound die. Indicate various elements in it.

(b) Sketch and explain the constructional details of Hydraulic press and mention its salient features.


5. (a) Derive an equation to calculate Extrusion Load.

(b) Discuss the common methods of extrusion processes with sketches.


6. (a) Differentiate between ‘Surface Cracking’ and Internal Cracking of the extruded product. How they can be explained? Mention methods of eliminating them.
