Sheet Metal Forming: Processes and Applications
Sheet Metal Forming: Processes and Applications covers all major sheet forming operations including blanking, bending, flanging, deep drawing, stamping, spinning, clinching, and crimping. It describes the forces, stresses, and temperatures associated with each forming operation, the equipment and tooling normally used, and the control of critical process variables. It discusses the steps involved in modeling and simulating forming processes and presents a number of case histories showing how computational methods have been used to improve forming operations. The book also covers newer forming methods including warm forming of magnesium and aluminum, forming of advanced high-strength steels, incremental sheet forming, roll forming, sheet and tube hydroforming, flow forming, shear spinning, and hot stamping. It also provides information on tooling treatments and coatings and the use of various sensors for in-line process monitoring and control.
