Abstract : Electrohydraulic forming experiments with 10 in. diam 4130 steel cylinders and sheet metal domes in various material are described. Strain rate measurements for dome forming are presented as a function of discharge voltage and power. The formability of electrohydraulic and conventional processes in terms of dome depth and stretch at rupture are compared. (Author)
