|Abstract: ||This paper examines the unique work being undertaken in the UK to ensure the continued competitiveness and advancement in capabilities of the companies that make up the UK metalforming industry. The work is a partnership between commercial metalforming simulation package vendors, universities and the industry through its main trade association the Confederation of British Metalforming. In examining the present activities, a case is made for a National Centre for Metalforming Simulation.|
|Description: ||As the properties of metals for aerospace applications are enhanced to function in increasingly hostile environments, their formability becomes increasingly difficult. At the request of the aerospace companies in the European FP5 MMFSC project (G4RD-CT-2000-00217) - Rolls-Royce, Volvo Aero Corporation, Industria de Turbo Propulsores, Snecma Moteurs, and MTU Aero Engines - a review of explosive forming (processes, properties, and applications) was completed to examine methods of overcoming increasingly important formability issues. The review was presented as an invited keynote paper at the 9th International Conference on Metal Forming, and subsequently published.|
