The paper shows the investigation results of correlating electric discharge and pressure field parameters aimed to improvements in the electrohydraulic impact forming (EHF) technology at industrial application. The experimental research was performed by using a conical discharge chamber equipped with a set of two electrodes in semi-industrial EHF installation. Pressure fields along round flat area were measured by applying the multi-point membrane pressure gauge methodology. The conditions of the tests include a wide range of spark gaps with four levels of charge voltage and energy. Measurements of discharge voltage and current are performed with voltage divider, Rogovsky coil and electronic oscilloscope. Other electric discharge parameters were calculated from the recorded voltage and current curves. The essence of investigation is to analyse energy parameters for peak pressure of shock wave generated by these discharge energy parameters. Though these dependencies were earlier analysed ...
