Starting with a 2-in.-diameter rod of brass, we would like to process 0.2-in.-diameter rods that possess minimum yield strength of 40 ksi and a minimum elongation to fracture of 40% (see Fig. 6.44). Design a process that achieves that. Hint: Reduction of the diameter directly from 2 in. to 0.6 in. is not possible; why?
