About the book
Superplasticity is a phenomenon by which very fine-grained metals can exhibit remarkable ductility. The phenomenon of superplastic material exists in crystalline materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics, and intermetallics. Because superplastic metals have higher ductility compared to other materials, intricate and complex components can be manufactured without joints or rivets. As a result, components can be produced with less waste, high precision, and low costs. The components made from superplastic materials are suitable for use in aerospace, automotive, and other growing industries. This book intends to compile and present to the research community the most recent studies on understanding the fundamentals of superplasticity in materials with a specific focus on grain size and diffusion. The second part of the book will aim to cover the manufacturing of superplastic metal, superplastic forming standards, techniques, and equipment. The book's last section's goal is to explore the mechanical properties of superplastic materials and superplastic forming processes.
