Experiments were conducted to determine the effect of interface friction and specimen geometry on the useful ductile flow limit of 1100 aluminum and 1095 steel at room temperature. The tests consisted of measuring the equatorial strains during simple upsetting of circular cylinders. From the measured strains the surface stress components were calculated. All occurrences of fracture were observed to be the normal type. In some cases no surface cracks were observed and a possible explanation is given in the paper.
