Deformation resistance and forming limit are considered as important factors in cold forgeability.
High temperature strength means in most cases bad forgeability and weldability as well as combined with high toughness challenging machinability.
It looks at strengthening mechanisms and other means of optimizing mechanical properties, resistance to oxidation and corrosion, and manufacturing characteristics such as castability, forgeability, and weldability.
