F= A x Tß
Cutting force
F = Cutting force S = Material thickness L = Total cutting length A = L x S = Shear area

Tß = Shear strength Note : Shear strength = 80% of tensile strength

P= ( L x S x Tß ) / 10
Stripping force
P = Stripping force S = Material thickness L = Total cutting length A = L x S = Shear area

Tß = Shear strength

L = a + ( R + q x s/2 )( Pi x ° / 180)
L = Flat blank length a, b = Length of legs R = Bend radius q = Correction factor ( refer to table below ) ° = Bend angle Pi = 3.1416
Correction factor q Ratio R : s
