The pressing of sheet metal into useful shapes is a technology which requires an understanding of a wide range of subjects. This text is divided into three sections: processes, materials and tests. In Part 1, sheet metal forming is examined mainly from a mechanical engineering viewpoint; firstly plasticity and anisotropy, then process variables - friction, lubrication and temperature - and finally practical aspects of forming in the press-shop. Part 2 deals with the main sheet alloys at varying lengths, depending on their industrial popularity. Certain research results, showing the fallibility of the phenomenological approach, are also highlighted. A section of testing procedures concludes the volume.
