Experimental study on the formability of AA6016 sheets pre-strained by rolling

The effects of prestrain by rolling on the formability of AA6016 sheets in the biaxial stretching region are studied in this paper. An experimental program including formability experiments has been carried out for as-received and prestrained …

Comparison of 2 methodologies developed for the determination of residual stresses through X-ray diffraction: application to a textured hcp titanium alloy

For polycrystalline materials, the experimental determination of residual stresses neglects the so-called 2nd order fluctuations arising from e.g. plastic or thermal incompatibilities from grain to grain. This constitutes a serious limitation of …

Resin flow modeling in compliant porous media: an efficient approach for liquid composite molding

In Liquid Composite Molding (LCM) processes such as Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) and Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM), complete saturation of reinforcement with resin during the injection step is necessary. In RTM, reinforcement …

Shape accuracy analysis of multi-point forming process for sheet metal under normal full constrained conditions

In order to study the shape accuracy of multi-point forming (MPF) process for sheet metal under normal full constrained conditions, the in-depth analysis of shape accuracy of workpieces in multi-point forming with individually controlled …

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.
