In the last years many researchers were concentrating to develop and design new unconventional metal forming processes. Among such new technologies, tube hydroforming was proved as one of the most promising. Geometry of the tube and die were found to have significant effects on the hydroformed part. In this work, Response surface method was used based on data provided by Finite element modeling to construct a model for the bulge height as a function of geometrical factors for T-type bi-layered tube hydroforming. Interaction effects were analyzed and discussed.
