An investigation of high speed metal forming with liquid shock waves.
Kosing, Oliver E
In this work a new high speed metal forming process is experimentally and theoretically investigated and discussed. The high speed metal forming is carried out in a liquid shock tube. The pressure energy of a liquid shock wave, which is generated non-explosively is used to form the metal workpiece.(abbreviation abstract)
