Read alsoThe Civil War from A to Z
The Civil War from A to Z is written from Two Points of View so that one can begin to understand how the United States was torn apart by war not so very long ago. For example, "A, Antebellum" is first told from the North's perspective and then from the South's. This book is written for young people studying the Civil War in…
Engineers in stamping plants and press shops find the book useful in understanding what happens during forming and why failures occur. The book is also used as a text for industrial short courses that have been given in many countries. Die designers and tooling engineers find the simple treatment of processes useful at the conceptual design stage and also in determining modifications needed to overcome problems indicated by detailed numerical analysis.
The original text, published 10 years ago, has been completely rewritten for this edition and newer topics such as hydroforming included. Simple equations governing plastic deformation, press forming, bending, punch stretching and deep drawing are derived and explained. The aim is to provide simple applicable methods rather than complex numerical techniques for practising engineers and for students interested in a quantitative and practical approach.
SIMPLIFIED STAMPING SIMULATION SOFTWARE "4S'
The analytical treatment in this book is used to develop simulation modules for simple cases of sheet forming such as stamping, deep drawing, bending and hydroforming. Students can investigate the influence of tooling dimensions, material properties and process variables such as friction on the outcome of operations and see from animated models how, for example, press loads develop during forming. Applications using this package greatly enhance interest in the development of theory in the book.
The website http://www.mssinternational.com provides further information and an opportunity to run some of the modules.
