Deformation Based Processing of Materials: Behavior, Performance, Modeling and Control focuses on deformation based process behaviors and process performance in terms of the quality of the needed shape, geometries, and the requested properties of the deformed products. In addition, modelling and simulation is covered to create an in-depth and epistemological understanding of the process. Other topics discussed include ways to efficiently reduce or avoid defects and effectively improve the quality of deformed parts. The book is ideal as a technical document, but also serves as scientific literature for engineers, scientists, academics, research students and management professionals involved in deformation based materials processing.

Key Features

  • Covers process behaviors, such as non-uniform deformation, unstable deformation, material flow phenomena, and process performance
  • Includes modelling and simulation of the entire deformation process
  • Looks at control of the preferred deformation, undesirable material flow, avoidance and reduction of defects, and improving the dimensional accuracy, surface quality and microstructure construction of the produced products


Engineers and management professionals in mechanics, manufacturing and materials science; Academics, researchers and graduate students who are doing research related to manufacturing, materials processing, mechanics of materials
