HERF is a nonconventional forming process.Different types of HERF are explosive forming,hydraulic forming and magnetic forming




PROBLEM-1(Explosive Forming)SOLUTION

(a) Standoff Distance-This is the distance between workpiece and explosive

Given Diameter, D=1.2 mso Stand off Distance=0.51.2=0.6m(b) Hydrostatic pressure

Hydrostatic head, H=2S (where S is the standoff distance) H=20.6=1.2m

Hydrostatic Pressure, P=gH =10009.811.2 =11760 N/m2(c) Solid Angle

The expression for solid angle is

=tan-1( ) =45

= (1-cos45)=0.14644180=26.36

Where,p = peek pressure in MpaK = A constant dependent on the explosive = for TNT

W = weight of the explosive in kgR = stand off distance of the explosive from the work piece in meter.a = 1.5(usual)Therefore,

Q.A Thin-walled spherical shell is under internal pressure, p. The shell is 0.5m in diameter and 2.5 mm thick. It is made of a perfectly plastic material with a yield stress of 140 Mpa. Calculate the pressure required to cause yielding of the shell according to both yield criteria. Solution given, shell diameter=0.5m shell thickness=2.5mm yield stress =140 Mpa

PROBLEM-9For a shell under internal pressure, the membraneStresses are given by

Where r=254mm and t=2.54mm. The stresses in the thickness direction, ,is negligible because of the high r/t ration of the shell. Thus, according in the maximum shear stress criterion,



HenceThe pressure required is then According to the direction-energy criterion


Hence Therefore, the answer is the same, or p=2.8MPa
