The metal goes into the
plastic deformation after the application of external load. Most of the metal
forming industries work on this principle of plastic deformation. Thus the
understanding of plastic deformation in the metal forming industry is important. The
research on the single material plastic deformation has been carried out from
many centuries before
the era of Tresca. In this study the two metals 0.05% C steel annealed (soft
metal) and 0.6% C steel quenched and tempered (hard metal) were deformed
plastically in the parallel combination in the composite form. This study has
been carried out with simple mathematical theory and simulated numerical model.
The comparison shows the exact match between the mathematical and numerical
results. It is also observed that the individual metal thickness affects the deformation flow curve.
