Upsetting is the primary technique to form the material to gain importance in the manufacturing industry. It is well known that the increase in level of deformation increases the hardness of material. The hardness distribution is not uniform and will vary inside the billet at different point because of barreling nature of the billet. the present work is to optimize the process parameter responsible for the non-uniform hardness distribution inside the billet, Barreling behaviour and the deformation load using Taguchi technique. The optimum process parameter were suggested and the percentage of contribution of each parameter were noted down using ANNOVA analysis. This optimum parameter reduced the indifference in the hardness distribution. Simulation study was conducted for predicting the strain distributions. In the hot forging process at the die/billet interface, influence of friction plays a significant role. In this work, the influence of varied friction conditions on the barreling behavior is studied. The friction factors of these lubricants grease (m=0.22), boric acid (m=0.30), and vaseline (m=0.29) were obtained from a Ring Compression Test (RCT). .
