Abstract : An experimental program was conducted to establish the feasibility of producing high quality wide tungsten sheet through use of the flow turning process. To establish basic limitations for the flow turning of various tungsten starting materials, a series of 90-degree included angle cones were flow turned from 0.125 in. thick tungsten plate. It was established that as-sintered, sintered and forged, sintered and rolled, and arc cast and rolled plates could be flow turned at minimum temperatures of 1400F, 1100F, 900F, and 600F, respectively.
