  • modeling and analysis at micro-scales - needed in micro-scale metal forming, from the point of view of mechanism-elucidation-oriented approach;
  • modified continuum models, modifying limitations - of continuum models in micro-scale deformation analysis, and crystal plasticity considered;
  • knowledge obtained in modeling study - applied to structure design of micro-scale machines, constructed by parts made by micro-scale metal forming


This chapter contains sections titled:

  • Introduction

  • Limitation of Continuum Models at Micro-Scales

  • Modified Continuum Models

  • Molecular Dynamics Models and Disadvantages

  • Examples of Micro-Scale Modeling Approaches and Cross-Comparisons

  • Summary, Conclusions and Remaining Research Issues
