there seems to be a lot of info on google, "steel bending" or "metal bending" could be your friend.

I think you will also need to state what material thickness you are working with, most time in general bottom die is 8x material thickness. The 24" long is pretty much irrelevant. This site give some good info on bending. http://www.americanmachinetools.com/pressure_table.htm
