This article emphasizes the traits that are common to high-velocity forming operations. It describes general principles on how metal forming is accomplished and analyzed when inertial forces are large. The article discusses the principal methods of high-velocity forming, such as explosive forming, electrohydraulic forming, and electromagnetic forming. It provides examples that illustrate how these methods can be practically applied. The article concludes with information on the status and development potential for the technology.
