Application of Knowledge-Based Techniques

In a deformation process, dies are used to transform a given material with a simple shape into a useful part. The resulting part has a complex geometry with well-defined shape, size, tolerances, appearance and properties (Altan et al. 1983). The desired part geometry is stored in the dies and imparted onto the material with pressure through the material-die interface.
