    Abstract

    Complete experimental investigation on the workability behavior of sintered plain carbon steel cylindrical preforms with carbon contents of 0%, 0.35%, 0.75%, and 1.1%, under cold upsetting, has been studied in order to understand the influence of carbon content on the workability process. The abovementioned powder metallurgy sintered preforms with constant initial theoretical density of 84% and aspect ratio of 0.4 were prepared using a suitable die set assembly on a 1 MN capacity hydraulic press and sintered for 90 min at 1,200°C. Each sintered preform was cold upset under nil/no frictional constraint. Under triaxial stress state condition, densification, axial stress, hoop stress, hydrostatic stress, effective stress, and formability stress index against axial strain relationship were established and presented in this work. Further, attained density is considered to establish formability stress index and various stress ratio parameters’ behavior.
