Description - Finite-Element Plasticity and Metalforming Analysis by G. W. Rowe
Finite Element Plasticity and Metalforming Analysis is concerned with describing a computer based technique for aiding the optimisation of metalforming processes. The methods described in this text should enable tool and product designers to reduce development lead times for the introduction of new products, to optimise the process and to help improve the quality and reliability of products. The book is specifically devoted to the finite element method and its use in plasticity problems. It details the theoretical background assuming little previous knowledge, and describes how it can be implemented and how it can be used to examine realistic metalforming processes. Forging, rolling and extrusion are typical processes covered in the text, in addition to specific problems such as ductile fracture and how it can be predicted. It is the first text that describes in detail elastic-plastic finite-element theory and how it is used in forming analyses. The technique described in the book can be used to simulate metal flow in 2- and 3-D problems and can provide details of stress, strain, strain-rate and temperature distributions in the workpiece as it is being formed.
For most realistic problems large capacity computing facilities are required but the text describes simplified versions of the program that can be run on microcomputers and includes a full listing of a program that can be used for demonstration purposes. A full bibliography of books and research papers, with 700 entries, is provided to aid those investigating the subject. The book is intended for the specialist wishing to use the technique in industry or research or for the non-specialist new to the subject.
