Modeling of Metal Forming and Machining Processes: by Finite Element and Soft Computing Methods


The physics of metal formingĀ and metal removing is normally expressed using non-linear partial differential equations which can be solved using the finite element method (FEM). However, when the process parameters are uncertain and/or the physics of the process is not model the process.
Using FEM, fuzzy set theory and neural network as modeling tools; Modeling of Metal Forming and Machining Processes provides a complete treatment of metal forming and machining, and includes:
– an explanation of FEM and its application to the modeling of manufacturing processes;
– a discussion of the numerical difficulties of FEM;
– chapters on the application of soft computing techniques in this modeling process.
The algorithm and solved examples included make Modeling of Metal Forming and Machining Processes of value postgraduate, senior under-graduates, lectures and researchers in these fields. R & D engineers and consultants for the manufacturing industry will also find it of use.
The Engineering Materials and Processes series focuses on all form of materials and the uses to synthesise and formulate them as they relate to the various engineering disciplines. The series deals with a diverse range of materials: ceramics, metals (ferrous and non-ferrous), semiconductors, composites, polymers, biomimetics, etc. Each monograph in the series is written by a specialist and demonstrates how enhancement in materials and the processes associated with them can improve performance in the field of engineering in which they are used.
