Abstract

Use of FEM in the metal forming process has been a proven analysis tool. Two-dimensional FEA for simplified sections can help to reduce time and cost in part, tooling and process design in tube hydroforming technology as it is a relatively new process, and the existing experience and knowledge base is not as broad as with other forming processes. Some case studies are presented to demonstrate the use of two-dimensional FEA in the hydroforming process. Upon verification through comparison of FEA predictions with experimental results, further planned simulations are conducted to generate simple design rules on geometrical and process parameters.
