Abstract : Several high strength steels, namely HP 9-4-25, D6AC, 12% nickel and 18% nickel maraging steels and a high strength aluminum alloy 7039 were investigated with respect to explosive forming and subsequent effects of forming on mechanical behavior. In addition criteria necessary for full scale die design were developed.
