Hydroforming simulation in Abaqus

Notice: This package will be available one week after purchase. Hydroforming is a metal forming process that allows the shaping of various metals, such as steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, and brass. It is a cost-effective and specialized form of die molding that utilizes highly pressurized fluid to shape the metal. Hydroforming can be classified into two main categories: sheet hydroforming and tube hydroforming. Sheet hydroforming uses a single die and a sheet of metal, while tube hydroforming involves expanding metal tubes using two die halves. Hydroforming simulation in Abaqus is a valuable tool for optimizing the hydroforming process. It enables engineers to predict and analyze important factors such as material flow, stress distribution, thinning, and wrinkling during the forming process. By accurately simulating the hydroforming process, engineers can optimize key parameters like fluid pressure, die design, and material properties to achieve the desired shape with minimal defects. In this package, you will learn hydroforming process simulation with the SPH method and using time-pressure curve.
