Metal Forming: Technology and Process Modelling

by: Uday S. Dixit, R. Ganesh Narayanan


Abstract: One of the most important manufacturing processes, metal forming is essential for engineers working in the manufacturing and related sectors. This book covers fundamental aspects and recent technological developments in the area: from fundamentals of plasticity, friction in metal forming, and metal extrusion to forming process optimization, sheet metal forming, flange wrinkling in deep drawing, formability of tailor welded blanks, and much more. Some of the highlights of this book: covers fundamentals and advanced topics in bulk and sheet metal forming chapters written by experts from the academia and the industry chapters equipped with detailed references for further exploration gradual progression from fundamental to advanced topics While the organization, language and style of the book make it equally accessible for beginners and specialists, this work will be particularly useful for practicing engineers as well as senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical, manufacturing, production and metallurgical engineering.
