This collection of papers focus on advanced methods for predicting and avoiding the occurrence of defects in manufactured products. A new feature is included, namely, the influence of the processing-induced defects on the integrity of structures.
The following topics are developed: damage modeling; damage evaluation and rupture; strain localization and instability analysis; formability characterization; prediction of shape inaccuracies; influence of defects on structural integrity. The main manufacturing operations are covered and various materials are examined, such as new and conventional metal alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites.
For engineers and researchers interested in manufacturing products and materials.
