Good day everyone, 

I have a question regarding the terminology of cold working and work hardening. I read somewhere that they are synoymous, but are they really? To my knowledge, cold working refers to the plastic deformation of metal parts at low temperatures. As far as I know, cold working is not deliberatr while work hardening is. Am I wrong??
