We would like to draw your attention to this Special Issue of JMMP on “Analysis and Modelling of Sheet Metal Forming Processes”. Analysis and modeling play a vital role for accessing the feasibility of sheet metal forming processes. Nowadays, almost no tool design in industrial stamping is manufactured without successful virtual tryout. Process simulations thus help reduce cost and lead time and allow for exploring new process designs without building expensive equipment. In spite of these achievements, methods for the simulation of sheet metal forming processes are still subject to extensive research efforts due to the fast progress in the development of new sheet materials, new process designs and process control strategies.
This Special Issue on the “Analysis and Modelling of Sheet Metal Forming Processes” focuses on contributions that detail new developments and enhance the understanding of sheet metal forming analysis and modeling. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Methods for the optimization, robust design and control of sheet metal forming processes
- Through process Modeling from sheet production to crash simulation
- Advanced Damage Modeling for sheet and tool material
- Prediction of residual stresses and springback
- Novel methods for characterization of sheet metal forming properties and parameter identification
- Models for new sheet materials (monolithic and hybrid)
- Models for flexible and sheet-bulk forming processes
- Constitutive Modeling of sheet metal, especially multi-scale analysis
- Models for warm forming of sheet metal
- Friction models, especially for new tribological conditions such as dry forming or forming with structured tool surfaces
- New element formulations and solution techniques
I am very much looking forward to your contributions.Prof. Dr. Markus Bambach
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
