Counter Finite Element Plasticity and Metalforming Analysis is specifically devoted to the finite element method and its use in plasticity problems. It details the theoretical background, assuming little previous knowledge, and how it can be used to examine realistic metalforming processes. Forging, rolling and extrusion are typical processes covered in the text, in addition to more specific problems. It is the first text that describes in detail elastic-plastic finite-element theory and how it is used in forming analyses. For the most realistic problems large capacity computing facilities are required, but the text describes simplified versions of the program that can be run on microcomputers and includes a full listing of a program that can be used for demonstration purposes. A full bibliography of books and research papers, with 700 entries, is provided to aid those investigating the subject.
