A fundamental understanding of warm forming of Al, Ti and Mg alloys will benefit various industries (automotive, aerospace, defense, electronics, medical etc.). Technology for Warm forming of Al, Ti and Mg alloy sheets is developed (in co-operation with University of Virginia, University of Darmstadt (Germany), University of Hanover (Germany), Aida Dayton Technologies, support by NSF).
1. Use FE modeling and experiments to determine,
1. material properties (elevated temperature hydraulic bulge test and property variation within sheet and tube). 2.
