  • Introduction

    Metal forming may refer to the metalworking process of fashioning metal parts and products through mechanical deformation, wherein the workpiece is usually deformed and reshaped permanently, and the material can achieve the desired microstructure and properties (mechanical, electrical, and magnetic) accordingly. In the past decades, many procedures and methods have been developed, such as traditional metal forming processes like forging, extrusion, indenting, die forming and rolling, and advanced ones, for instance, equal channel angular pressing (ECAP), equal channel angular rolling (ECAR), high-pressure torsion (HPT) and additive manufacturing processes (3D printing) with plastic, metal, concrete, etc. Nowadays, power numerical techniques to provide more intuitive and precise solutions to complex scientific and engineering problems, are increasingly being used to simulate and investigate the metal forming processes at macro, micro and multi-scale, through which the mechanical properties, constitutive relations, tribological and fatigue behaviors of the formed parts can be analyzed and predicted in a fast and effective manner, saving the cost and time in the conventional experienced-based trial-and-error methods to a large extent.
    This special issue mainly aims to present the latest works and advance the research and development of advanced metal forming processes utilizing various numerical methods such as finite element method and finite difference method, and full papers, communications, and reviews relating to theory, numerical simulation and their associated experimental processes, properties characterization of metallic materials are all welcome for submission.
