Abstract

Popular theory is that when two flow fronts combine, they merge to form a single flow front. With plastic flow being laminar, the flow fronts should not rejoin and two separate parallel parabolic flow fronts should be maintained. The establishment of additional orientation laminates throughout the component should yield a shift in material properties related to orientation effects.
