Abstract : This Lecture Series considers process modeling which provides a new perspective to advance metal forming and thermo-mechanical processing. Working and forming processes are viewed as systems which integrate component behaviour such as workpiece flow, heat flow and friction at the workpiece-tooling interface, and microstructural evolution. These are combined to form a system process model using deformation mechanics. The Lecture Series covers extrusion, forging, rolling, and sheet forming processes. It will provide specific results for light metals, steels and superalloys and introduce finite element methods and related aspects of computer-aided process design. The Lecture Series was sponsored by the Structures and Materials Panel and organized by the Consultant and Exchange Program of AGARD.
