This book helps the engineer understand the principles of metal forming and analyze forming problems - both the mechanics of forming processes and how the properties of metals interact with the processes. The first third of the book is devoted to fundamentals of mechanics and materials; the middle to the analyses of bulk forming processes like drawing, extrusion, and rolling; and the last third covers sheet forming processes. In this new third edition, an entire chapter has been devoted to forming limit diagrams, and various aspects of stamping, including the use of tailor welded blanks, and another on other sheet forming operations, including hydroforming of tubes. Coverage of sheet metal properties has been expanded to include new materials and more on aluminium alloys. Interesting end-of-chapter notes have been added throughout as well as references. More than 200 end-of-chapter problems are also included.
