Development of a three-dimensional finite element method simulation model to predict modified flow drilling tool performance

Flow drilling is a relatively unexplored manufacturing process in which the tool penetrates the workpiece with a defined force or defined feed along its rotational axis. This paper presents a developed three-dimensional (3D)-finite element method …

Similarity measures for identifying material parameters from hysteresis loops using inverse analysis

Sum-of-square based error formulations may be difficult to implement on an inverse analysis consisting of multiple tension-compression hysteresis loops. Five alternative measures of similarity between curves are investigated as useful tools to …

End flare of linear flow split profiles

One approach to design load optimized structures is the use of bifurcations. Linear flow splitting is a continuous sheet-bulk metal forming process, whereby bifurcated profiles are manufactured without joining or external heat supply. By roll …

Low-cost metal-forming process using an elastic punch and a reconfigurable multi-pin die

Due to the need for low-cost tooling and quality parts, a new technique has been developed which brings together the benefits of both multi-point forming (MPF) and rubber-pad forming. A significant disadvantage of MPF is the time required to …

Research on a wrinkle-free forming method using paraffin wax for sheet metal

This paper presented an effective method for sheet metal to prevent wrinkling and reduce machining allowance by using paraffin wax. The paraffin wax was used as pressure medium to transfer and exert a continuous and uniform forming pressure over …

Über diese Zeitschrift

· The International Journal of Material Forming is the official Journal of the European Scientific Association for material FORMing (ESAFORM) (

The Journal publishes and disseminates original research in the field of material forming. The research should constitute major achievements in the understanding, modeling or simulation of material forming processes. In this respect ‘forming’ implies a deliberate deformation of material.

The journal establishes a platform of communication between engineers and scientists, covering all forming processes, including sheet forming, bulk forming, powder forming, forming in near-melt conditions (injection moulding, thixoforming, film blowing etc.), micro-forming, hydro-forming, thermo-forming, incremental forming etc. Other manufacturing technologies like machining and cutting can be included if the focus of the work is on plastic deformations.

All materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, glass, wood, fibre reinforced materials, materials in food processing, biomaterials, nano-materials, shape memory alloys etc.) and approaches (micro-macro modelling, thermo-mechanical modelling, numerical simulation including new and advanced numerical strategies, experimental analysis, inverse analysis, model identification, optimization, design and control of forming tools and machines, wear and friction, mechanical behavior and formability of materials etc.) are concerned.

Papers should describe new forming processes, experiments, models or modelling techniques, related to forming or the relation between process conditions and product properties. In general, simulation results should be validated by experiments unless the focus is purely on novel modelling techniques. New models or modelling techniques should have a broad applicability in forming simulations and should not be restricted to one particular shape.

Results of analytical or numerical models that are not translated into new knowledge or are not supported by experimental validation will not be accepted. Similarly, submissions that describe experimental results without thorough evaluation and conclusion and thus not leading to new knowledge, will be rejected. The relevance for forming technologies and the novelty of the work should be clearly described in the abstract.
