Special Issue Information
Large-scale bulk forming processes are widely used for the processing of materials. The analysis and design of such processes require accurate constitutive equations and boundary conditions. The constitutive equations should account for material response under conditions that occur in real forming processes. It is evident that standard tests are not capable of reproducing all possible conditions. Therefore, new experimental techniques are needed for developing accurate constitutive equations at large strains. Of special importance are the constitutive equations for the prediction of the evolution of ductile damage and plastic anisotropy. Friction has a great effect on material flow in forming processes. Therefore, the friction law is one of the most important boundary conditions, and the determination of the friction stress by experiment is an extremely difficult task. Therefore, the development of new friction tests is a vital aspect of the successful analysis and design of material forming processes. On the other hand, fast computational methods are needed for solving boundary value problems, especially when calculations are to be performed in real time. Moreover, the development of analytic methods is useful for understanding some general tendencies in solution behavior and for verifying numerical solutions.
In this Special Issue, we seek to provide a wide set of articles on various aspects of bulk forming processes. Articles devoted to different materials (traditional metals, powders, composites, etc.) are desired. We are seeking articles devoted to both experimental and theoretical (analytical and numerical) approaches, as well as a combination of these approaches.
