In this book the classical rigid-plastic model of deformed workpiece and the characteristic (slipline) method of analysis is assumed. The rigid-plastic solid assumption is deemed reasonable for the problems of technological plasticity with large scale plastic flow, where small elastic stains are negligible. Along with classical results of the theory of plasticity the book includes many original analytical and numerical solutions of the problems of technological plasticity obtained by the authors in Russia and unknown for most western readers. The results of the analyses are given by analytical formulae and many graphs and tables, so the book will be useful for the practical and research engineers. It may also be used as a textbook by graduate students and engineers.
