Forging is a very complex process and the measurement of actual forces for real material is difficult and cumbersome. The main objective of this document is to use the analytical methods for measuring parameters such as load, and stress distribution of forging process and use them to make simple, reliable, fast and non-expensive simulation tools, contrary to the commercial software's which require much means, time and a perfect knowledge of the process. Of the various methods used for analysing forging operations, the most often used SLAB method techniques are described here.
