Application of Bernoulli equation in cold forming of Steel

farzad64's picture

Hi All

I know it might sound weird, but can I use the bernoulli equation to know the velocity of steel running in thinner throtles in cold forming, that might have a higher velocity, via analytic method. in this condition, the metal is not so much like a fluid, but it's deforming ,and it's behavior and speed is different when it passes in different cross section areas

During cold forming of steel, the metal still behaves like an elastic solid rather than fluid, that is, the metal resists shear stress unlike a fluid that flows under applied shear stress. You can model cold forming of steel using Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian or purely Eulerian solid mechanics as done in the following references:
