Book Description

Metal forming processes include bulk forming and sheet metal forming with numerous applications. This book covers some of the latest developments aspects of these processes such as numerical simulations to achieve optimum combinations and to get insight into process capability. Implementation of new technologies to improve performance based on Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technologies are also discussed, including the use of CAD/CAM/CAE techniques to enhance precision in manufacturing. Applications of AI/ML, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the role of tribological aspects in green engineering are included to suit Industry 4.0.


  • Covers latest developments in various sheet metal forming processes
  • Discusses improvements in numerical simulation with various material models
  • Proposes improvements by optimum combination of process parameters
  • Includes finite element simulation of processes and formability
  • Presents a review on techniques to produce ultra-fine-grained materials

This book is aimed at graduate students, engineers, and researchers in sheet metal forming, materials processing and their applications, finite element analysis, manufacturing, and production engineering.
