Numerical simulation of superplastic bulge forming test
Superplastic blow forming is a technology of shell parts production. The development of these processes requires computer simulation which cannot be realized without accurate parameters of the applied material. This characterization can be based on results of free bulging tests. Characterization techniques utilize the models of the dome growth during the bulging test. This study is devoted to the assessing of friction coefficient effect on the linear behavior of normalized thickness - normalized height relation.
