GRIZELJ, Branko; CUMIN, Josip; ERGIĆ, Todor (2009)
Publisher: Croatian Union of Mechanical Engineers and Naval Architects
Journal: Strojarstvo : časopis za teoriju i praksu u strojarstvu
Languages: English
Types: 0038
Subjects: Hydroforming; Fluid pressure; Metalforming; Strain-hardening
This article deals with the theory and application of a hydroforming process. Nowadays automobile manufacturers use high strength sheet metal plates. This high strength steel sheet metal plates are strain hardened in the process of metal forming. With the use of high strength steel, cars are made lightweight, which is intended for low fuel consumption because of high energy prices. Some examples of application of a hydroforming process are simulated with FEM.
