Finite Element Method in Manufacturing Processes
March 2011, Wiley-ISTE
The finite element method (FEM) has become the main instrument for simulating manufacturing processes, owing to the fact that it can replace experimental approaches to the study of manufacturing processes in many cases. This book describes some of the research fundamentals as well as advances in the application of FEM in such manufacturing processes as machining, bulk deformation, sheet metal forming, surface treatments, micromanufacturing processes, and more. It is a highly useful reference for academics, researchers, engineers and other professionals in manufacturing and computational mechanics.
