Abstract:

The results of a project carried out by the authors in electrohydraulic and magnetic metal forming are given. The circuits employed, the pulse current generator, and the properties of such circuit components as capacitors, trigger and working gaps, and working coils, are described in detail. The conditions for the generation of shock waves in connection with exploding wire phenomena are given, and the current curves are presented together with calculations of the power and energy dissipated. In addition, some examples of aluminum and transformer sheet forming are given. Finally, the design of tubular shunts for the measurement of steep current pulses, their properties, and testing methods are discussed. Author
