The occurrence of ductile fracture during the plastic deformation of powder metallurgy materials is adverse and damaging and the prediction of fracture is very important in the early stages as early modifications will prevent failure. This will tend to save a lot of money and forming limit studies in many metal forming processes is up most important. Forming limit analysis on the cold forged molybdenum reinforced carbon steels were carried out in this work. In this study two key strain hardening parameters are used to study the formability characteristics. This analysis is effectively used for design of powder metallurgy parts and most importantly the die design as repressing needs to be employed before pores appear as cracks on the free surface. The cold forging was carried out on Fe-0.8%C, Fe-0.8%C-1%Mo, Fe-0.8%C-1.5%Mo and Fe-0.8%C-2.0%Mo and the formability behavior of the same is presented.
