Detailed experimental and numerical analysis of a cylindrical cup deep drawing: Pros and cons of using solid-shell elements

The Swift test was originally proposed as a formability test to reproduce the conditions observed in deep drawing operations. This test consists on forming a cylindrical cup from a circular blank, using a flat bottom cylindrical punch and has been …

The generation of the forming path with the springback compensation in the CNC incremental forming

Aiming at the problem of the springback in the CNC incremental forming, a method for predicting the springback and generating the compensated forming trajectory was proposed based on the explicit and implicit finite element analysis. First, the …

Numerical study of springback using the split-ring test: influence of the clearance between the die and the punch

The split-ring test consists in cutting a ring from the wall of a drawn cylindrical cup, which is split to measure the springback. This springback measure can also be used to estimate the circumferential residual stresses in the ring. It is known …

Time dependent sheet metal forming optimization by using Gaussian process assisted firefly algorithm

For a sheet metal forming optimization problem, time related design variables are seldom considered in practice. The purpose of this work is to handle time dependent sheet metal forming problems. Because it is difficult to investigate all time …

A simplified model of plain weave fabric reinforcements for the pure shear loading

An analytical and non-linear finite element (FE) modelling approach of plain weave fabric reinforcements have been developed to predict shear force for pure shear condition. For simplicity two main components of force for shear deformation has …

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.
