International Journal of Material Forming

ISSN: 1960-6206 (Print) 1960-6214 (Online)


The International Journal of Material Forming is the official Journal of the European Scientific Association for material FORMing (ESAFORM) ( The aims of the Journal are the publication and the dissemination of original research in the field of material forming. The scope of the Journal is to establish a platform of communication between engineers and scientists, covering all forming processes, including sheet forming, bulk forming, powder forming, forming in melt or near-melt conditions (casting, injection, extrusion, film blowing etc.), machining and cutting technologies, non-traditional processes such as abrasive jet, laser or ultrasonic abrasion, rapid prototyping and rapid tooling, micro-forming, hydro-forming, thermo-forming, incremental forming etc. The contributions in the field of tools design, manufacturing and control, process chains, virtual manufacturing and quality assurance in material forming are also welcome. All materials will be considered, including metals, ceramics, polymers, fibre reinforced materials, composites, glass, wood, materials in food processing, biomaterials, nano-materials, shape memory alloys etc. The Journal is pleased to receive papers from engineers and scientists from academic and industrial areas using all kinds of approaches: micro-macro modelling, thermo-mechanical modelling, numerical simulation including new and advanced numerical strategies, experimental analysis, inverse identification, optimization, designing and monitoring of the processes and metal forming machines, wear and friction, mechanical behaviour and formability of the materials etc.
