Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In impulse-based manufacturing technologies, the energy required for forming, joining, or cutting components acts on the workpiece in a very short time and suddenly accelerates workpiece areas to very high velocities. The correspondingly high strain rates and inertia effects affect the behavior of many materials, resulting in technological benefits such as improved formability, reduced localizing and springback, extended possibilities to produce high-quality multi-material joints, and burr-free cutting. This Special Issue of JMMP will present current research findings which focus on exploiting the full potential of these processes by providing deep understanding of the technology and the material behavior and detailed knowledge about sophisticated process and equipment design. The range of considered processes covers electromagnetic forming, electrohydraulic forming, explosive forming, adiabatic cutting, forming by vaporizing foil actuators, and other impulse-based manufacturing technologies. Papers will be considered that show significant improvements for the above-mentioned processes with regard to:

  • Processes analysis;
  • Measurement technique;
  • Technology development;
  • Materials and modelling;
  • Tools and equipment; and
  • Industrial implementation.

Lightweight structures in the automotive and transportation industry are increasingly researched. Multiple materials with tailored properties are integrated into structures via a large spectrum of joining techniques. Welding is a viable solution in mass scale production in an automotive sector still dominated by steels, although hybrid structures involving other materials like aluminum are becoming increasingly important. The welding of dissimilar metals is difficult if not impossible, due to their differential thermo mechanical properties along with the formation of intermetallic compounds, particularly when fusion welding is envisioned. Solid-state welding, as with magnetic pulse welding, is of particular interest due to its short processing cycles. However, electromagnetic pulse welding is constrained by the selection of processing parameters, particularly the coil design and its life cycle. This paper investigates two inductor designs, a linear (I) and O shape, for the joining of sheet metals involving aluminum and steels. The O shape inductor is found to be more efficient both with magnetic pulse (MPW) and magnetic pulse spot welding (MPSW) and offers a better life cycle. Both simulation and experimental mechanical tests are presented to support the effect of inductor design on the process performance. Full article
