Hydroforming Developments: Insights of other Researchers
Hydroforming is one of the forming technique which paves the way for the easy production of light weight and high strength automotive and aerospace components. The different approaches presented by the various authors in the field of hydroforming and its applications are reviewed in this paper. The authors have used Finite Element Analysis using different simulation tools like Abaqus, Ansys, LS-Dyna and Autoform 3D that help to minimize the failure cost of materials and dies. This paper deals with those disparate approaches, discussing exhaustively the process and application of hydroforming, providing sufficient data to make readers identify the burgeoning areas of research.
