From once being of interest only to the aerospace and aeronautical industries, superplastic forming (SPF) has recently made inroads into the automotive, rail, architectural, sports, dental and entertainment sectors. However, due to a number of problematic technological issues ranging from die-material selection, die design, surface finish (e.g. alpha casing), differential thinning, temperature-pressure-time cycle determination and overall economy, the application of superplasticity has reached nowhere near its full potential. This volume presents the field. It reveals that scientific research in superplasticity has broadened so as to include many more materials systems than before, and now covers intermetallics, ceramics, composites, nanocrystalline materials and even metallic glasses. Many of the contributions here concentrate on further exploitation of the full potential of suplerplastic forming in the area of industrial applications.
