In this study, the effect of axisymmetric compression of cylindrical blocks
of copper on diameter ratio, height reduction ratio and aspect ratio was
noted. The effects of these non-dimensional parameters are very
significant to the geometry of barreling throughout the process of plastic
deformation of a cylinder under axial compression. The barreling effect
was studied for solid and hollow copper cylindrical blocks having different
dimensions. The relationship between the parameters was also studied.
The practical results obtained were compared with some of the existing
theories, and there was a good correlation of the results with these
