Determination of process limits and parameters for hydroforming was conducted applying widely known plasticity, membrane and thin-thick walled tube theories. Analytical predictions were compared with experimental findings. Simple but useful analytical models to predict buckling, wrinkling and bursting as well as axial force, internal pressure, counter force and thinning in tube hydroforming were verified with experimental results.
