ABSTRACT
In this study experimental bulging tests carried out on the superplastic AZ31 magnesium-based alloy are investigated to determine the influence of the forming pressure on the final thickness at the dome apex. A statistical analysis concurs to establish i) a mathematical relation of the thickness as the height measured at the dome apex varies and ii) that the influence of forming pressure on the thickness trend versus dome apex height is not negligible.
