About the book
MODELLING TECHNIQUES FOR METAL FORMING PROCESSES describes modelling techniques that are available for analyzing and understanding the mechanics involved in metal forming processes. The techniques covered are the uniform energy method, the slab method, the slip-line field technique, the upper-bound technique, the visioplasticity technique and the finite element method. These techniques are described in Chapters 3 to 8. The fundamentals of plasticity, particularly the yield criteria and associated flow rules, required for understanding these modelling techniques is covered in Chapter 2 after a brief introduction about the modelling techniques in Chapter 1.
