The key problem for flanging forming of square tributary junction on spherical shell is to determine the shape and sizes of prefabricated hole. In order to investigate precise shape and sizes of the prefabricated hole, an optimized design model was established. The flanging forming process was simulated using the software of FE-simulation and the target function for optimized design was calculated based on results of the simulations. In order to increase the convergence rate of the optimized design, a mathematical model of prefabricated hole for flanging forming on spherical shell was established, the results were used as initial values for optimized design. To verify its accuracy, the optimized design was carried out on a typical flanging forming of square tributary junction on spherical shell. The results of the optimized design meet the technological requirements.
