Course Objective The number of discarded workpieces increases due to forming errors in industry. On the other hand, the trial and error aproach is used to determine the optimum process parameters in manufacturing process directly. In both cases, economic losses are large. However, nowadays, it is possible that metal forming processes can be accurately modeled and simulated .
Course Content Introduction to Metal Forming process, linear strain, elastic stress-strain relationship, plasticity theory, Modeling and Simulation Techniques for Metal Forming Operations, Modeling and Simulation of Metal Forging process, Modeling and simulation of sheet metal forming process, Modeling and simulation of the extrusion process.
