Paper Abstract

Tube bending locally heated by a laser beam is analysed. This heating reduces the yield stress and prevents stress hardening thus making easier the process of plastic deformation. In the present work simple model of elasto-plastic bending of circular tubes is developed and some experimental results of laser assisted bending are shown.
