Industry needs more reliable information on flow stress, friction and wear in industrial processes because generally these phenomena are not very well understood. They are also unpredictable and can cause a number of problems such as high and unpredictable values of processing forces, temperatures, and tool life, as well as poor precision and surface condition of workpieces in manufacturing. In recent years, significant developments have taken place in the application of computational mechanics to cutting and forming operations. The process itself can be affected by very high flow stresses that occur under the extreme conditions created by such operations. The contributors in this book discuss the state of the art and new developments that deal with flow stress and friction in mechanical processing such as cutting and forming of metals and other materials. Emphasis is given to modeling of friction and flow stress, testing under simulated conditions in order to model friction and flow stress in actual industrial processes, and new possibilities to reduce friction and wear. It also includes detailed information related to fundamental aspects of recent developments like the use of coated tools, high-speed machining, unusual work materials and microprocessing
