graduation about prestressed wire straightness

2 years 4 weeks ago #2960 by Dr Bram Steijn
Dear fellow colleagues,

I am a student mechanical engineering and i am currently graduating in a company that creates prestressed steel wire.
my graduation research consists of trying to map all the parameters that have effect on the wire straightness.

my goal will be describing an ultimate process what gives you the best mechanical properties (Rp0,2 and Rm for example) but with also the best straightness. maybe this is optimistic but i have to set a goal, right?

My question actually is: "is there any literature where i can find some theory about the wire drawing process?"

kind regards,
