ELECTROMAGNETIC FORMING

## The static pressure(p) that acts in a tube, with an outside

diameter Do and a thickness t, to reach a hoop stress equal to
yield strength i.e. to reach a plastic deformation can be
obtained from the relation

=
Due to the inertia effect when deformation takes place at high
strain rates, a multiplying factor N of 2-10 is used to calculate
the magnetic pressure pm required to deform the tube. Therefore,
Pm=2tN /Do

PROBLEM-6
(Electromagnetic Forming)
Q. A brass tube(=300MPa) of 150mm outer
diameter and 2.5mm thickness is to be
formed using EMF. Calculate the magnetic

SOLUTION
Given data:
Yield strength of brass, =300MPa,
Outer diameter Do=150mm,
Thickness of tube t=2.5mm,
