The effects of laser energy and different shock spaces and shock times on the TA2 titanium sheet deformation are investigated experimentally and simulated numerically by ABAQUS software. The results indicate that the amount of TA2 sheet deformation increases with the increase of laser energy, varies with shock order and shock path, and is the greatest when the shocks are along the length of sheet and symmetrical. The numerically simulative results are consistent with the experimental data.
