Vital to the formation of everything from beverage cans to aircraft, the formation of thin metal sheets by stamping at room temperature is important to a wide range of industries. Distinguished commercial researcher Tang and Pan (mechanical engineering, U. of Michigan, Ann Arbor) provide a strong introduction to modern principles and applications that deal with the science, mathematics and technical aspects of sheet metal forming. In this classroom text that doubles as a professional reference, they use automotive forming processes as their example as they describe typical processes such as stretching and drawing, trimming, flanging, and hemming as they work through such topics as tensors, stress, strain, linear elastic constitutive laws, mathematical models for forming processes, thin plate and shell analysis, finite element methods for thin shells, methods of solution for the equation of motion and numerical examples, and buckling and wrinkling analyses. They provide references with each chapter. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( more
