Subvolume 2C of Group VIII deals with the forming data of metals. The content is subdivided into three parts with the present part 2 covering non-ferrous light metal alloys, i.e. about 87 material systems, in a compact, database-oriented form. The knowledge of the deformation behaviour of materials is of vital importance in scientific research and in technical applications. The increasing use of numerical simulation in research and practice describes the real processes the better the more precise the response of the material, the processes at the interface between the material and the tools or technical facilities are characterized. This behaviour is affected by process and material related parameters and is represented by physical and mechanical properties, plasticity curves and flow curves in the different states of the respective material. In this volume these properties are given for every single alloy along with its detailed composition and, where given, useful international standard notation. An extensive introduction presents the fundamental terms and concepts of forming with special attention to numerical simulation process related properties. The variety of light metal alloys discussed emphasizes the relevance of the book as a compendium for scientists, researchers and engineers in metallurgical plants.
