Metals Process Simulation
Volume 22B describes the methods, models, and tools used to simulate manufacturing processes and predict the microstructure and mechanical properties of metals and metal parts. It covers a wide range of processes from melting, casting, and solidification to heat treating, welding, and machining. It also addresses powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, and diffusion coating as well as forming, bending, forging, and other deformation processes. In addition, the volume offers guidance on how to develop and assess input data for simulations, including thermophysical property data, grain-boundary data, flow stress and texture data, and 3D microstructure data. It also discusses the integration of modeling and simulation in design, particularly as it applies to design optimization, uncertainty, and error propagation. It includes a review of commercial tools and their application to industrial alloys. For information on the print version of Volume 22B, ISBN 978-1-61503-005-7, follow this link.
