Microstructure evolution in metal forming processes
Woodhead Publishing Ltd, July 2012, Pages: 416
Microstructure Evolution in Metal Forming Processes summarises the wealth of recent research on the mechanisms, modelling and control of microstructure evolution during metal forming processes.
Part one reviews the general principles involved in understanding and controlling microstructure evolution in metal forming. Techniques for modelling microstructure and optimising processes are explored, along with recrystallisation, grain growth, and severe plastic deformation. Microstructure evolution in the processing of steel is the focus of part two, which reviews the modelling of phase transformations in steel, unified constitutive equations and work hardening in microalloyed steels. Part three examines microstructure evolution in the processing of other metals, including ageing behaviour in the processing of aluminium and microstructure control in processing nickel, titanium and other special alloys.
Part 1 General principles: Understanding and controlling microstructural evolution in metal forming: An overview
- Techniques for modelling microstructure in metal forming processes
- Modelling techniques for optimising metal forming processes
- Recrystallisation and grain growth in hot working of steels
- Severe plastic deformation for grain refinement and enhancement of properties.
Part 2 Microstructure evolution in the processing of steel: Modelling phase transformations in steel
- Determining unified constitutive equations for modelling hot forming of steel
- Modelling phase transformations in hot stamping and cold die quenching of steels
- Modelling microstructure evolution and work hardening in conventional and ultrafine-grained microalloyed steels.
Part 3 Microstructure evolution in the processing of other metals: Microstructure control in creep-age forming of aluminium panels
- Microstructure control in processing nickel, titanium and other special alloys.
