Paper Title:
Study on Product Design and Process Simulation of Hydroformed Automobile Framework
  Abstract

To achieve smaller weight, stronger strength and higher stiffness, tube hydroforming is widely used in the industry. The front beam is analysed the front beam part is redesigned based on the technics, and automotive structural lightweight and integration are achieved under the precondition of ensuring vehicle performance and security. Then, the hydroforming process of front beam is analyzed by numerical simulation based upon the elastic-plastic finite element method, Belytschko-Tsay shell element theory and dynamic explicit solution, the internal pressure loading path as the main hydroforming process parameters is discussed in detail. The present analysis provide basis for its applications.
