Description: This interactive animation schematically presents upsetting test, and the test results can be useful for the simulation of cold forging processes. If a cylindrical test piece is compressed between parallel dies, the equivalent strain can be calculated from the measured curve F(s). In this calculation the error of force only propagates into stress while the error of height reduction propagates into both stress and strain. Thus it can be expected that the experimental error of s is more important than that of force F.
