Explosive forming is one particular forming technique, in which, most commonly, water is used as the pressure transmission medium. In recent years, we have done the development of the method which obtains a necessary form of the metal by the control of underwater shock wave acts on the metal plate, without a metal die. On the other hand, the pressure vessel is required in various fields, but we think that the free forming using the underwater shock wave is advantageous in the production of pressure vessel of a simple spherical, ellipse, parabola shape. In this paper, we will introduce an experiment and several numerical simulations that we carried out for this technical development.
