Figure 1 illustrates, for the die stamping process already shown in Fig. 2, Chap. I, two stages in the evolution of the block as it undergoes such an operation:
  • in its original state (configuration k 0) the block is rectangular and covered by a square grid,

  • in its current state (configuration k t ), application of the die has forced material down to the base and into the upper part as required for the forming process, and the grid has been deformed.
