Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has currently been developed into an efficient, user friendly tool for investigation of many metal forming processes. Thus by FEA, it is now possible to visualize any metal forming process to study strain, stress and other important forming conditions inside the work piece. FEA has also become an important industrial tool in connection with design and development of new forming processes and tools. This paper presents Stress and Elastic Strain analysis of a
