Problems of Heat, Mass and Momentum Transferin Manufacturing Processes: A Brief Review .

In machining processes the chip flows over the tool rake and carries heat away as it moves. This is a case of mass transportation with heat transfer. Similarly, during hot forging, upsetting or coining processes heat is transferred from the hot billet to the relatively cooler dies, punches or hammers with momentum transfer under high impact load. Also, in high energy rate fabrication (HERF) processes, such as electromagnetic forming, explosive forming, impact extrusion, etc. heat is generated almost instantaneously, in milliseconds, and its dissipation is a serious industrial problem due to the very short process cycle time. In the present paper some of the problems related to heat, mass and momentum transfer in the above mentioned manufacturing processes are reviewed and compared with experimental results.
