Abstract : Single point deformation, as a method of producing wide W sheet, is described and compared to conventional rolling. Prior experimental work by Wah Chang Corporation and Pratt + Whitney Aircraft is presented. This work has demonstrated the potential feasibility of the single point deformation method as it applies to W and other hard-to-work materials for the fabrication of sheet material. A sintered and forged W blank was flow turned from 0.250 to 0.018 in. thick without failure of any part of the material. (Author)
