ABSTRACT
A general theoretical method for determining springback of arbitrary shaped
thin tubular section of materials having arbitrary stress-strain relationship under
torsional loading is presented. The theoretical analysis has been compared with
earlier analysis of tubular sections of particular materials and has been shown
that the expressions obtained in the, work presented. The theoretical results also
have been found to quit in agreement with the results obtained experimentally.
It has been shown that when applied torque is kinetic loading or angle of twist
given is kinetic loading, springback angle and residual angle of twist can directly 
be calculated from the shear stress-strain curve, avoiding any idealization/
approximation for the same.

Keywords: Metal forming, Springback, Torsional springback, Thin tubes,
