If you design, evaluate, or produce metal parts, this is an indispensable reference on the principles and practices of workability evaluation and process design. Workability is a complex technological concept that is related to both material and process characteristics, and this book describes the underlying concepts and practical methods for effective design, evaluation, and optimization of bulk working operations such as forging, rolling, and extrusion. The Handbook of Workability and Process Design includes updated content from a previous ASTM publication (Workability Testing Techniques, 1984) as well as substantial new coverage in the areas of process design, numerical simulation, and computer-based modeling of testing and processing conditions. Contents: Introduction: Overview of workability and process design; Bulk working behavior of metals; Evolution of microstructure during bulk working; Workability testing techniques: Bulk workability testing; Cold upset testing; Hot compression testing; Hot tension testing; Torsion testing to assess bulk workability; Hot working simulation by hot torsion testing; Thermomechanical testing; Process design and workability: Design for deformation processes; Workability theory and application in bulk forming processes; Workability in forging; Forging process design; Modeling techniques in forging process design; Data acquisitions and control; Rolling; Workability and process design in rolling; Drawing; Extrusion; Workability and process design in extrusion and wire drawing; Multidisciplinary process design and optimization: Computer aided and multidisciplinary optimization of forging processes; Microstructure driven computer-aided process optimization; Process design of gas turbine engine components using process optimization software; Computer-aided optimization to improve process engineering productivity for complex die and preform design, and process control; Index
