Experimental characterization and analysis of fiber orientations in hemispherical thermostamping for unidirectional thermoplastic composites

Nowadays there is seldom literature concerning in-plane fiber orientation variations in the thickness direction for composites after thermostamping. In present work, cross-section microscopy observations were carried out to characterize fiber …

A simple and systematic scheme implemented in explicit FEM solver for surface tension effects in powder injection moulding process

In order to simulate more accurately the powder injection moulding process, the explicit finite element method solver is extended with the surface tension effect. The evaluation of surface tension takes the notion of pressure boundary method …

A proposal improvement in flatness measurement in strip rolling

In strip rolling flatness of the final product is controlled inline with a roll sensor placed at the outgoing of the tandem mill to measure the longitudinal (in the rolling direction) internal stress profile throughout the coil. This profile …

Different experimental ways to minimize the preforming defects of multi-layered interlock dry fabric

This study presents a strategy to improve the quality of a dry fabric’s preforms. Preforming tests were realized with one and two-layers of interlock carbone fabric at different configurations. Initial results led to preforms with several defects.

Effect of powder metallurgy synthesis parameters for pure aluminium on resultant mechanical properties

In this work, pure aluminium powders of different average particle size were compacted, sintered into discs and tested for mechanical strength at different strain rates. The effects of average particle size (15, 19, and 35 μm), sintering rate (5 …

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.
