Forty-five years of superplastic research: recent developments and future prospects
Although superplasticity has a long history, dating back to the first laboratory-scale observations in 1934, the major new developments in superplasticity have occurred almost exclusively over the last four decades. Furthermore, this corresponds to the period associated with the ICSAM conferences which started with a first conference in San Diego, California, in June 1982 and has continued to ICSAM-2015 in Tokyo, Japan. Major developments over this time include the growth of a vibrant and effective superplastic forming industry and an extension of the concept of metallic superplasticity to include both ceramics and geological materials. This paper examines the significance of these developments and discusses future prospects and new opportunities within the field of superplastic research.

Abstract

Although superplasticity has a long history, dating back to the first laboratory-scale observations in 1934, the major new developments in superplasticity have occurred almost exclusively over the last four decades. Furthermore, this corresponds to the period associated with the ICSAM conferences which started with a first conference in San Diego, California, in June 1982 and has continued to ICSAM-2015 in Tokyo, Japan. Major developments over this time include the growth of a vibrant and effective superplastic forming industry and an extension of the concept of metallic superplasticity to include both ceramics and geological materials. This paper examines the significance of these developments and discusses future prospects and new opportunities within the field of superplastic research.
