Abstract

A procedure is proposed for determining the initial thickness distribution in oder to produce a specified final thickness distribution for the axisymmetrical superplastic blow forming processes. Weighted parameter is introduced to improve the simple ad $d_traction method and the initial blank thickness distribution is obtained by optimizing the weighted parameter. This method is applied to superplastic free bulging process with the uniform thickness distribution of final shape to confirm its validity. The optimum initial blank thickness distributions is obtained from arbitrary axisymmetrical superplastic blow forming processes such as dome, cone and cylindrical cup forming with die contact. It is concluded that the ad$d_traction method with weighted parameter is an effective method for an optimum blank thickness distribution design.esign.
