Numerical methods, particularly finite element (FE) analysis, are being used increasingly to optimize product design and deal with problems in metal forging, rolling, and extrusion processes. Metal Forming Analysis describes the latest and most important numerical techniques for simulating metal-forming operations. The first part of the book describes principles and procedures and includes numerous examples and worked problems. The remaining chapters focus on applications of numerical analysis to specific forming operations. Most of these results are drawn from the authors' research in the areas of metal testing, sheet metal forming, forging, extrusion, and similar operations. Sufficient information is presented so that readers can understand the application of the nonlinear finite element method to forming problems without a prior background in structural finite element analysis.
