Theoretical models for the hydrodynamic lubrication of plane strain and axisymmetric sheet metal stretch forming processes with cylindrical and spherical headed punches, respectively, are developed. The lubricant is treated as an isoviscous Newtonian liquid for both geometries. In addition, the influence of sheet heating due to plastic deformation with an exponential variation of viscosity with temperature is analyzed for the plane strain case.
