The author takes the format of the IDDRG Working Groups as the foundation on which to build his book.
  • In Part 1 - Processes - sheet metal forming is examined from a mechanical engineering viewpoint, firstly plasticity and anisotropy, then overlaying these with process variables such as friction, lubrication, temperature and the like and concluding with practical aspects of formingthe press-shop and associated problem solving.
  • In Part 2 - Materials - the main sheet alloys are dealt with at varying lengths, depending on their industrial popularity.
  • In Part 3 - Tests - those which are currently popular are described and discussed and their usefulness and shortcomings high-lighted.
