Frictional behavior in metalworking processes between the tool and the workpiece for unlubricated condition is discussed. The primary aim of the work was to develop means to predict frictional behavior in terms of which metal flow can be better understood. Experimental and theoretical work has been carried out to determine the important variables of metal working friction. It was found that friction is dependent upon the strength of the workpiece, the pressure, the surface adhesion, and the surface roughness. The pressure-dependence of shear strength based on experimental data is also discussed. Finally, although techniques are available to predict friction, they are dependent upon the ability to predict interface surface temperature.
