Deformation based processing of materials: Behaviour, performance, modelling and control is focused on two main areas: deformation based process behaviours and process performance in terms of how well it produces the needed shape and geometries and the requested properties of the deformed products. In addition, modelling and simulation is presented as an efficient approach to revealing the insight into the physical and scientific nature of the process in such a way as to create an in-depth and epistemological understanding of the process. From a process and tooling design prospective, control of inhomogeneous and unstable deformation and facilitation of the preferred materials flow is also featured in this book. How to efficiently reduce or even avoid the defects and effectively improve the quality of the deformed parts are a critical concern in this book.

The data, information and knowledge presented in these four categories are valuable and informative for the research and development of lightweight and high-performance products using deformation based processing industries. In addition, the text of this book is state-of-the-art, fundamental, practically significant, informative, readable and self-contained. The practicability of this book allows it to be not only a technical document but also a scientific and valuable literature for engineers, scientists, academics, research students and management professionals involved in deformation based materials processing, manufacturing, materials science and engineering, engineering mechanics, mechanical engineering and the management of the enterprises using the deformation based materials processing technologies in mass-production of related products. Therefore, readers of this book will benefit from the readability and practicability regardless of manufacturing, solidmechanics and materials science and engineering background.
