Paper Title:
Finite Element Simulation for Superplastic Blow Forming of Toroidal Ti-6Al-4V Fuel Tank
  Abstract

In the current study, the finite element simulation for superplastic blow forming of a toroidal Ti-6Al-4V fuel tank is discussed. 3 types of preforms are investigated in order to obtain defect free final shape with desirable thickness distribution. From the simulation result, forming tool is designed so that the hydraulic pressure is not used. The forming test is carried out using forming pressure profile obtained from the simulation, and the validity of the selected perform is investigated in terms of thickness distribution and deformed shape.
