Sheet Metal Forming Fundamentals is a comprehensive reference for the practical and efficient use of sheet forming technologies. The principle variables of sheet forming—including the interactions between variables—are clearly explained, as a basic foundation for the most effective use of computer aided modeling in process and die design. Topics include stress analysis, formability criteria, tooling, and materials for sheet forming. The book also covers the latest developments in sheet metal forming technology including servo-drive presses and their applications, and advanced cushion systems in mechanical and hydraulic presses.

Sheet Metal Forming Processes and Applications is a practical and comprehensive reference covering the latest developments on the design of sheet forming operations, equipment, tooling, and process modeling. Individual chapters cover all major sheet forming processes such as blanking, bending, deep drawing, and more. Process modeling using finite element analysis is described in one chapter and discussed in all appropriate chapters. Other chapters cover sensors and die materials, which are critical for practical sheet forming applications. Other topics include relatively new technologies, such as warm forming of magnesium and aluminum alloys, forming of advanced high-strength steels (AHSS), and hot stamping.  Chapters also address special sheet forming operations, like spinning, incremental forming, and mechanical joining, and processes related to sheet forming, such as sheet and tube hydroforming, roll forming, and high-velocity forming.
