Title: Mechanics of Sheet Metal Forming
Authors: Z. Marciniak, J. Duncan
Publisher:
Edward Arnold
Year: 1992


In this book, the theory of engineering plasticity is applied to sheet metal forming processes. Bending, stretching and drawing of simple shapes are analyzed and, where possible, the limits governing each process are identified.
 
This is the first English text to gather together the mechanics of sheet metal forming in this manner, though it does, of course, draw on earlier work by Swift, Sachs, Fukui, Johnson, Mellor and Backofen.
 
It is intended for both students and practitioners and may also assist the researcher. This book may well serve as a teaching text and includes a number of exercises at the end. There are no references.
