The objective of this study was to investigate material deformation in the course of a high-speed (>1500 m/s) water impact and to use the acquired knowledge for improvement of the forming technology. An experimental setup for projectile fabrication was constructed and a series of experiments involving sub-millimeter and micron scale metal deformation was performed. The geometry and topography of the generated samples were investigated using advanced surface examination techniques and the feasibility of the liquid impact based micro-forming technology was demonstrated.
