The application of computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques is becoming essential in modern metal-forming technology. Thus process modeling for the determination of deformation mechanics has been a major concern in research . In light of these developments, the finite elementmethod--a technique by which an object is decomposed into pieces and treated as isolated, interacting sections--has steadily assumed increased importance. This volume addresses advances in modern metal-forming technology, computer-aided design and engineering, and the finite element method.
Shiro Kobayashi is at University of California, Berkeley.

Editorial Reviews

"The volume is remarkable on many counts. It is an extremely well-researched and well-presented first book on the subject. Current, exhaustive literature survey is evident in each chapter. Graduate and research students in the field of metal forming would find this a most useful book. For theclarity of its presentation, practicing engineers interested in applying FEM to metal-forming processes and design will benefit from this volume." --Journal of The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society
