Abstract

Titanium and its alloy are widely used in the automobile and aircraft industries because of a variety of advantages: good corrosion resistance, light in weight and high strength [1]. However, use of the titanium and its alloy has been highly selective due to its high cost. Titanium tailor-welded blanks (Ti-TWBs) are expected to be one of the candidate materials to address this issue. In fact, forming both titanium alloy and titanium tailor-welded blanks (Ti-TWBs) at room temperature is very difficult due to their specific characteristics: potential embitterment, low workability, and high springback effect [2]. To overcome these shortcomings, Ti-TWBs have been recommended to form at elevated temperatures not less than 150°C [2, 3]. However, the investigation on the effective strain measurement for forming Ti-TWBs at elevated temperatures is still quite limited.
