Recent developments in modeling the hot working behavior of metallic materials

  • V V Kutumarao
  • T Rajagopalachary


Three distinct trends in the modeling of hot working behavior of metallic materials are identified. These are respectively (a) analytical and numerical methods to characterize the material flow behavior and related macroscopic properties, (b) metallurgical models to predict microstructural parameters at each step in a multi-step processing operation, and (c) hot workability models to predict optimum conditions of temperature and strain rate for a single step deformation. Important features of the models are critically examined and some possible directions for future work indicated.
