The forming limit curves are important aids in determining the extent of deformation a material can be subjected to during a forming process. In this paper a forming limit criterion for bulk metalworking processes, based on the magnitude of the hydrostatic component and the effective stress of the state of stress, is proposed. The determination of the forming limit curve by means of three simple tests, namely, tension, compression, and torsion tests, is presented.
