The averages followed the hypothesized trend that slower rates should require less total work to produce the bends.
It was hypothesized that decreasing the rate of strain and increasing the MC would decrease the level of work required to produce the bend and decrease the probability of failure.
In conventional bending, variation in material characteristics causes deviation of the bend angle.
