Prof. A. Erman Tekkaya reported that expamples of Cirpedia terms had already been printed by Springer in hardcopy and he thanked the STC-F members for their contributions. Prof. Tekkaya has resigned from the committee as the vice chair as the forming part is completed.

Keynote Papers

Progress and discussion on the 2014 keynote paper “Testing and modelling of material behavior and formability in sheet metal forming processes” by Professors Bruschi, Altan, Banabic, Bariani, Brosius, Cao, Ghiotti, Khraisheh, Merklein and Tekkaya were made.       The complete draft will be distributed to the entire STC-F members in November.

Progress and discussion on the 2015 keynote paper “Predicting and controlling product properties in metal forming processes” by Professors Tekkaya is postponed to the January 2014 meeting in Paris, waiting for a decision on a keynote proposal on closed loop control strategies and systems in metal forming operations.

Keynote Proposals for 2016 and 2017

Prof. Mori proposed “Hot stamping of ultra-high strength steel parts” on behalf of potential co-authors M. Merklein, J. Yanagimoto, A. Azushima, B.-A. Behrens, P.F. Bariani and S. Bruschi. Dr. Allwood proposed “Closed loop control of Product Properties in Metal Forming” on behalf of potential co-authors T. Kuboki , P. Groche, G. Hirt, M. Liewald, J. Cao, and E. Tekkaya. It was noted from the floor discussion that Mori’s proposal is more specific for forming and more towards industry, which makes it a good one for 2017 internal keynotes; while Allwood’s proposal is more academic and it follows the 2015 keynote closely, better for 2016.  The Allwood’s proposal was accepted for the 2016 keynote and the Mori’s proposal was accepted for the 2017 keynote.
