This book studies the flow of materials and the influence of strain rates on the relationship between imposed stresses and the dynamic deformations obtained. It provides applications for shaping, molecular molding, shrink-fit assembly and welding, including details of the various specific processes for implementation at high strain rates, illustrated by numerous industrial examples.

Rheology, Physical and Mechanical Behavior of Materials 1 presents analyses of plasticity mechanisms at microscopic and macroscopic scales, and of the various forms of stress-strain behavior laws according to working speeds, mechanisms, athermics, viscoplasticity and formability limits at types and speeds of change.

It is aimed at researchers involved in the mechanics of deformable media, as well as industrial design and manufacturing departments.

2. Obstacles and Mechanisms of Crossings.
3. Dynamic Flows for Monocrystals and Polycrystals.
