This work is a comprehensive presentation of the underlying principles and applications of the finite element method to the numerical simulation of both sheet and bulk metal forming processes. In this sense, the title is somewhat misleading as it implies a discussion of metal forming analysis in general, whereas very little is included on the more traditional approaches to metal forming analysis. However, the text is aimed at advanced graduate students and experienced practitioners in industry and elsewhere, who should be already familiar...
