Back cover copy

The competitive environments of the high-technology industries demand soundly based economical decisions in the design of manufacturing processes and product performance and reliability. Increasing demands are made on the performance of products, while cost reduction remains a critical issue. The development of the unified constitutive laws of plastic deformation helps manufacturers and developers to maintain and expand quality while cutting down production costs. This book is a summary of the current knowledge of the constitutive laws of plastic deformation. Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field and will be of particular interest to those involved in the development, design, and operational aspects of forming and shaping manufacturing processes. The book will also be useful to researchers and engineers dealing with the determination and control of the fracture lifetime of components subjected to plastic deformation.
