A rigid-plastic analysis of the axisymmetric deep-drawing problem is made using a special numerical technique. The effects of work-hardening, friction, and normal anisotropy have been included. Incremental strain theory is used to obtain results for both bending and membrane shell theories. These results are then compared. The authors feel that membrane theory gives very good results and should be used in the future to analyze any relatively thin cups.
