Paper Title:
Automatic Approach on Derivation of Loading Path Using Adaptive Finite Element Analysis Simulation Method
  Abstract

Loading path is one of the most influential parameter in tube hydroforming(THF) process. Load history has a major effect on failures such as buckling, necking, bursting, and so on. Because loading conditions that consist of axial feeding and internal pressure are imposed simultaneously. Therefore suitable loading path should be determined to prevent onset of failures i.e. bursting on final products. This paper deals with the procedure on determination of the loading path in order to ensure the robustness of the final products after the THF. In order to verify the availability and feasibility of the proposed methodology a subframe model of engine cradle module in automotive is implemented. In this study, thinning ratio and forming limit stress diagram is used to demonstrate the improvement of the finished product. The result shows that the developed algorithm has successfully promoted the effectiveness and feasibility in the THF. Consequently, it is shown that the automatic approach on the determination of loading condition which is proposed in this paper will provide a valuable method to satisfy the increasing practical demands for designing process condition in THF.
