Sheet Metal Forming: Fundamentals
Sheet Metal Forming: Fundamentals describes the changes that occur in sheet metals during forming operations and explains how to model and analyze them using computational techniques. It begins with a review of sheet forming practices followed by an in-depth discussion on the fundamentals of plastic deformation and its role in the forming process. The book devotes three chapters to the theory of deformation and its practical use in determining flow stress, assessing forming limits, and defining flow rules and hardening laws. It also discusses the formability of sheet steels and alloys, describes the effects of friction and lubrication, and explains how various sheet metal forming presses work and how to determine operating forces, stiffness, and other variables for use in process models. The book also includes a collection of flow stress curves and a glossary of relevant terms. For information on the print version, ISBN: 978-1-61503-842-8, follow this link.
