Applications of Electrically Assisted Manufacturing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Within this book, a modeling strategy for the EAF technique is explained for both compression and tension. Both strategies separate the thermal softening effects from the direct electrical effects and thus produce temperature and force profiles for their respective processes. However, in the real world, manufacturing processes are rarely exclusively compression or tension. Therefore, within this chapter, manufacturing processes that can be applicable to EAF will be explained. These include bending, stretch forming, machining, friction stir welding, and miscellaneous other EAF-industrialization research by researchers other than the authors. In addition, this chapter will include experimental EAF findings for compression, tension, channel formation, springback, and various types of forming.
