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.
They are bend angle, consistency of the bend angle, flange length, parallelism along the bends, and hole position relative to the bend line or the edge of the plate.
