Metal Forming 2016
This volume of Key Engineering Materials contains papers presented at the 16th Metal Forming International Conference held in Kraków, Poland on September 18-21, 2016. Metal Forming 2016 is the 16th in a series of International Conferences organized by AGH University of Science and Technology since 1974. From 1994 to 2010 the Conference was organized biannually, jointly with the University of Birmingham, UK. The latter was replaced by the University of Toyohashi in 2010, when the Conference went, for the first time, to Japan. Metal Forming 2012 was organized in Kraków by AGH University of Science and Technology, together with the University of Toyohashi and, for the first time, by the University of Palermo, Italy, which had joined the Organization team, and hosted the Conference in 2014.
The papers published in this volume represent the state-of-the-art in the field of metal forming science and technology. The contents of papers submitted by authors representing universities, research institutes and industry from all over the world demonstrate the results of a very wide spectrum of research topics, from micro- and nano- forming, to the numerical modelling of processes and systems. Manuscripts cover a wide range of materials from metal powders, titanium and magnesium alloys to advanced high strength steels and multiphase materials.
