Abstract

The behaviour of aluminium and mild steel tubes of 2 in. dia., 0.064 in. thickness and of lengths ranging from 2-24 in. loaded centrally by opposed wedge-shaped indenters is examined. Three modes of deformation are identified and analysed on the basis of plastic work considerations. Reference is also made to the behaviour of a very thin-walled tube of diameter to thickness ratio equal to 190.
