ABSTRACT
Superplasticity is a characteristic of certain materials, in particular aluminium alloys, whereby very large deformations (up to 1000 %) can be obtained before fracture under certain conditions. Superplastic forming is therefore the process of deforming a flange under these conditions by applying a variable pressure. The final geometry is obtained when the flange takes the form of a die. In order to deform a material superplastically, the temperature of the material should be approximately a half of the absolute melting point of the material and the strain rate (or flow stress) should remain within a certain range. The most important issues concerning the industrial process are the prediction of the final thickness distribution and the computation of the optimal pressure law to maintain superplastic conditions. Finite element simulations make these predictions possible for industrial components. To ensure the precision of the simulations, it is important to have good knowledge of the material behaviour in the superplastic domain: rheological parameters, grain size, damage law, etc. This paper presents an experimental analysis of the superplastic behaviour of a 7xxx aluminium alloy used for aeronautic applications. The parameters of the constitutive equations (including damage) are identified by using tensile tests, spherical bulging tests and numerical simulations [1, 2]. The performance of the proposed laws [1, 3, and 4] is tested using axisymmetrical geometries with complex shapes by the comparison of numerical simulations and bulge tests.
