The effects of friction upon the intermediate and final distorted grids for wire drawing and/or extrusion were analytically studied for an assumed triangular velocity field. An upper-bound solution process was used. This solution predicted that the shape of the final and intermediate distorted grids were functions of the process geometry of friction.
