Sheet metals have an unbroken history of fascination to research metallurgists, and are also of great importance to industry. Sheet metal, its properties, and methods for its efficient and targeted processing, are important issues; perhaps even more so today than in earlier times.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This collection includes 10 keynote papers, presented by experts from industry and from the international scientific community, as well as over 90 other papers. These contributions address the most important issues in Sheet Metal, such as materials and forming. In addition, the collection also focuses on the areas of intelligent manufacturing, the simulation of various processes, operations such as hydroforming, new aspects of sheet-metal processing and applications such as tailored blanks or incremental forming. Also discussed are results, and ongoing research, on the very new process of friction stir welding, This book fully reflects today’s most important and interesting issues concerning sheet metal. It will therefore be an invaluable source of information for any reader having an interest in Sheet Metal.
