Superplastic metal working processes have been modelled mostly based on semiempirical approaches and using simplifying assumptions [461–466]. In this chapter, such models known in the literature are reviewed. Attention is focussed on presenting the ideas from the viewpoint of mechanics of solids. The merits and limitations of these analyses are discussed with a view to improving them in the future. A comprehensive review of the industrial applications of superplasticity is beyond the scope of this book.
