This book focuses on the analysis of manufacturing processes and the integration of this analysis into the design cycle. Uniquely, the boundary element method (BEM) is the computational model of choice. This versatile and powerful method has undergone extensive development during the past two decades and has been applied to virtually all areas of engineering mechanics as well as to other fields. Among topics covered are BEM infrastructure, design sensitivity analysis, and detailed discussions of a broad range of manufacturing processes including forming, solidification, machining, and ceramic grinding.
