Abstract : The work performed, as described in this paper, has shown how by the Electroforming Process it is possible to: 1) manufacture thin shelled shapes with large re-entrant angles, and spherical shapes, to a high degree of accuracy; 2) manufacture thin shelled cylinders and cones to a high degree of accuracy and with exact duplication of specimens; 3) manufacture any specimen so that it requires no further finishing, thus eliminating stress concentrations from mechanically working the material.
