Shear and drape behavior of non-crimp fabrics based on stitching geometry

Non-crimp fabrics (NCFs) enable relatively high mechanical properties by keeping the reinforcement tows straight. Handling of those fabrics is improved by stitching the reinforcement tows together. While the stitching has little structural …

Multi-criteria optimization strategies for tree-structured production chains

The aim of this paper is presentation of some optimization strategies applicable in the optimization of multi-stage and multi-thread chain structures (linear and tree-structured acyclic graphs) with multiple intermediate goal functions. The …

Introduction to the level-set full field modeling of laths spheroidization phenomenon in α/β titanium alloys

The fragmentation of α lamellae and the subsequent spheroidization of α laths, in α/β titanium alloys, are well known phenomena, occurring during and after deformation. We will illustrate the development of a new finite element methodology to …

Numerical simulation of reactive polymer flow during rotational molding using smoothed particle hydrodynamics method and experimental verification

A numerical study of flow behavior and the heat transfer process of reactive polymer in reactive rotational molding systems is carried out using the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method (SPH). The flow of reactive polymer during rotational …

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.

IT-Risikomanagement im Produktionsumfeld

Mit der stetigen Zunahme der IT in Produktionsumgebungen steigt mit der Effizienz auch die Gefährdung gegenüber Schadsoftware oder Hackerangriffen. Best-Practices aus dem Bereich der Office-IT eignen sich leider oftmals nicht für Produktionsumgebungen. Dieser Beitrag erläutert die Gründe hierfür und liefert eine Übersicht vorhandener Best-Practice-Dokumente für das Produktionsumfeld. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
