Microstructure–Based Analysis of Deformation Processes
Xin Wu, Wayne State University, USA
Comprehensive reference on the most recent deformation processes
Great progress in plasticity theory has been made due to multi–disciplinary interaction and combination of materials science and mechanics that addresses the multi–scale physical and numerical approaches associated with the plastic deformation and related manufacturing processes. As a result, there is a need to re–investigate the classical theory of plasticity from both sides of continuum mechanics and physics–based micromechanics.
Microstructure–Based Analysis of Deformation Processes covers the most recent deformation/forming processes, new materials and new forming processes, as well as nano–technologies. It focuses on microstructure effect and the fundamental role of microstructure evolution on plastic deformation and presents the most recent developments of mechanical analysis, with brief descriptions of classical theory of plasticity and approaches.
- Includes tables, graphical illustrations and photographs.
- The author has combined education backgrounds of materials science and mechanics, and with rich industrial experiences in material processing and manufacturing.
This book is an advanced reference for graduate students in mechanical engineering, materials science and engineering, and industrial and system engineering as wells as researchers and practitioners in material and manufacturing industries.
