The application of computer-aided engineering, design, and manufactur-

ing, CAE/CAD/CAM, is essential in modern metal-forming technology.
Thus, process modeling for the investigation and understanding of
deformation mechanics has become a major concern in research, and the
finite-element method (FEM) has assumed increased importance, particu-
larly in the modeling of forming processes.
There are many excellent textbooks on the principles and fundamentals
of metal forming, but only a few describe the application of FEM to the
analysis and simulation of metal-forming processes.
The main purpose of this book is to present the fundamentals and
applications of FEM in metal-forming analysis and technology. The book
is primarily written for graduate students and researchers. However, it
should also be useful to practicing engineers who have a good background
in FEM and who are interested in applying this technique to the analysis of
metal-deformation processes.
In the application of FEM to metal forming, there are two formulations,
namely, flow formulation and solid formulation. Flow formulation assumes
that the deforming material has a negligible elastic response, while solid
formulation includes elasticity. Despite recent advances, the application of
solid formulation to the analysis of metal-forming problems remains
limited. On the other hand, flow formulation has found applications in a
wide variety of important forming problems. This book, therefore, is
mainly devoted to the applications that are based on flow formulation
(purely plastic and viscoplastic). However, recent advances achieved in
solid formulation have made it applicable to the analysis of some forming
problems. In order not to neglect these investigations, comparisons of
solutions based on both formulations, solid and flow, are presented in
Chapter 16.
The book begins with a general background on the subject in Chapter 1,
The description of metal-forming processes is given in Chapter 2, and
Chapter 3 details important technological aspects of these processes.
Chapters 4 and 5 present the theory of plasticity and methods of analysis as
applied to metal forming. The FEM formulations are described in
Chapters 6 and 7, and the applications of the method to the analyses of
various forming processes are presented in Chapters 8 through 11. Chapter
vi Preface
12 presents a thermo-viscoplastic analysis and Chapters 13, 14, and 15
include developments in the areas of deformation of porous materials,
three-dimensional problems, and preform design. The book concludes with
Chapter 16, in which further developments are discussed, along with the
outline of solid formulation and comparison of the results by both solid
and flow formulations.
Although this book primarily deals with metals, some of the principles
and solution techniques should be applicable to deformation analyses of
other materials, such as polymers and composites.
