Abstract:Finite Element (FE) simulations are performed to predict the Superplastic Forming behavior of AZ31B magnesium sheet intoregular and complex shape components viz., Square, Multiple V grooves, Combination of square and multiple V grooves. The Pressure-Time simulated from MARC isused to blow form the components. The forming time, height of the component at pole,sheet thicknessand strain rateof the manufactured components are found to be in close agreement with the FE results.
