A Software to Aid the Hydroformed Tube Component Design 2001-01-0710

To help our customers to design their parts, USINOR Research Center, with the collaboration of DOVAL, develop HYDROPUNCH, a finite element software to estimate quickly the difficulties of hydroformed parts without taking into account the process parameters.
HYDROPUNCH is based on a simplified computing method, which provides the evaluation of the geometrical difficulties of the prebent and hydroformed tubes as soon as the product design stage and which may help the tool design office for the definition of the hydroforming process.
The interest of this method, the speed of execution and several functionalities will be illustrated by different examples.
