Steel has been and still is the most commonly used construction material in many branches of the industry (e.g. building, automotive, mining, oil and gas). The recent drive for the development of “green steel” brings about new steel grades, e.g., complex phase steels that show Transformation-Induced Plasticity, Twinning Induced Plasticity effects or medium/high entropy steels. These modern materials are characterized by enhanced and unique properties, which are the result of complex, often multiphase microstructures providing (on condition that) their deformation behaviour is understood and fully controlled during metal forming processes. Also, sustainable development of the metal forming industry requires a redesign of existing technologies to take into account the environmental aspects, e.g., minimization of energy or/and introduction of circular economy aspects within the metal forming processes.
The scope of this special issue is focused on the understanding of the plastic deformation behaviour of steels in a wide range of metal forming processes. Papers on deformation behaviour of steel during hot/warm/cold bulk forming (rolling, forging, extrusion, drawing, etc.) and sheet forming are of particular focus. Studies on deformation behaviour during novel metal forming techniques (e.g., incremental forming, metal forming using explosives, electricity) as well as fundamental studies on formability and rheology assessment of steels using state-of-the-art characterization methods are welcome. The special issue also targets the green manufacturing aspects in metal forming.
