ABSTRACT Nowadays, thin-walled super-diameter pipes are produced by the method of
plastic bending of sheets. After a sheet is bent into a pipe and its ends are
welded, a pipe billet is subjected to expansion deformation. The technology of
forming end areas of a sheet is developed and formulaes forming forces
equations are deduced. Experimental investigations of deformation are undertaken.
