The knowledge of the sheet metals formality is important for the success of the manufacturing processed based on plastic deformation. Even though many industrial processes take place at relatively high speeds, higher than the quasi-static regime ones, few studies are present in the literature on the evaluation of the formability at high speed. In this framework, the present paper aims at studying the effect of the high strain rate on the formability of AA6082 aluminium alloy, characterized by a thickness of 1 mm. An experimental equipment, based on the Nakazima test, mounted on a direct tension-compression Split Hopkinson Bar, has been developed in order to define the formability under dynamic loading conditions. The high strain rate behaviour of the alloy has been compared with the one obtained in quasi-static condition.
