World Scientific's latest book on Fundamentals of Materials Modelling for Metals Processing Technologies: Theories and Applications comprehensively introduces the unique theory developed over years of research on materials and process modelling and its application in metal forming technologies.

The book chapters flesh out fundamental theories on the mechanics of materials, computational mechanics and the formulation of unified constitutive equations. Author JIanguo Lin from Imperial College London, UK, pays particular attention to elastic-plastic formulations for cold metal forming and unified elastic-viscoplastic constitutive equations for warm/hot metals processing.

He also places focus on damage in metal forming and numerical techniques to solve and determine the unified constitutive equations are also detailed. The key feature in this book is the examples given for the application of the unified theories to solve practical problems encountered in metal forming processes. Examples depicting applications are useful in predicting microstructure evolution in warm/hot metal forming processes. The book also introduces crystal plasticity theories and modelling techniques with their applications in micro-forming.

This 540 page volume is sold in major book stores at US$118 / £78 for the hardcover and US$68 / £45 for the paperback. More information on the book can be found at


About Imperial College Press

Imperial College Press was formed in 1995 as a partnership between Imperial College London and World Scientific Publishing. As such, the Press benefits from both the expertise of one of the world's leading academic institutions and the experience of a well-established and globally recognised Science, Technical and Medical publishing house. A modern success story, the venture has brought fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the world of academic publishing, with recent triumphs including Let There be Light (Montwill & Breslin), Classical Mechanics 5th ed (Kibble & Berkshire); The Physics of Solar Cells (Nelson); Science Research Writing (Glasman-Deal) and Physical Biology (Zewail) written by eminent scientist Ahmed Zewail, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1999.

Imperial College Press is committed to producing high-quality books in both print and electronic format, embracing advances in modern technology to produce excellent ebooks alongside traditional print books. To ensure maximum relevance to the scientific community, works published by the Press reflect the leading areas of teaching and research at Imperial College, notably Physics, Engineering and the Life Sciences. Within these areas of excellence we already publish many authors from around the globe at other leading institutions such as CalTech, Princeton University, the University of Cambridge and CERN.
