Article Preview

Based on the analysis of now available evaluation indexes to estimate the formability of T-shaped tube hydroforming, an aggregative indicator is proposed. The effect of load path on the formability of T-shaped tube is discussed by FEM simulation, and validity of the evaluation index and simulations are proved by experiment. Results show that with the broken line load path of 0-35-35-60, the value of aggregative indicator is the greatest and the formability is the best. The optional parameters are testified by experiment and the results are in agreement with the FEM simulation results.
