Fundamentals of Modeling for Metals Processing
Volume 22A provides a thorough review of computational modeling and its application in the development of alloys and associated processing techniques. It describes the basic concepts of modeling and simulation and accepted practices in the use of finite elements, computational fluid dynamics, mechanistic and phenomenological modeling, and statistical approaches. It addresses a wide range of processes, including deformation and solidification transformations, recrystallization, grain growth, precipitation, strengthening, and the evolution of microstructure and surface texture. It offers insight on damage evolution processes as well, examining cavitation, fracture, hot tearing, creep, crack growth, and fatigue. It also discusses phase equilibria and phase field modeling, state variable and constitutive modeling, electronic structure modeling, and density functional theory. It explains how use models to simulate and control mechanical properties and minimize defects in specific steels, aluminum, titanium, and superalloys. The volume also includes physical data, mathematical reference information, and a discussion on length scales and relevant effects.
