Metal is the most important material in modern industry, widely used in agriculture, industry, national defense industry, and other departments. Since the selection of materials for most mechanical equipments is based on its mechanical performance, the mechanical properties of metals should be first known. This section will focus on the plasticity and deformation resistance of metal materials and their influencing factors.
