Pre-stress state in cork agglomerates: simulation of the compression moulding process

In the present work, a physically-based finite element model simulating the compression moulding process of cork-based agglomerates is presented. The goal is the prediction of the pre-stress state due to the process and its influence on the …

Reduced order modeling of selective laser melting: from calibration to parametric part distortion

Additive manufacturing is an appealing solution to produce geometrically complex parts, difficult to manufacture using traditional technologies. The extreme process conditions, in particular the high temperature, complex interactions and …

Stamped part classification and automatic dieface design

In the context of weight reduction for new car design, it is essential to downsize, or rather optimize, the Body In White (BIW) structure. A very effective approach is to take into account the influence of Manufacturing process in the performance …

Experimental and numerical investigation of the generated heat in polypropylene sheet joints using friction stir welding (FSW)

In this paper, we aim to investigate the heat generated during friction stir lap welding in polypropylene sheets. In this method, the generated heat significantly depends on the tool’s rotational and linear speed, geometry, and tilt angle. Heat …

Study of forming limit diagram (FLD) prediction of anisotropic sheet metals using Gurson model in M-K method

This study uses the Marciniak and Kuczynski (M-K) method to present an analytical forming limit diagram (FLD) for sheet metals. The procedure for the analytical FLD prediction is described in detail and step-wise manner, and an algorithm is …

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.
