Abstract

This paper both summarizes and explores the literature published between 1995 and 2015 on enhancing and extending hydroforming technology. Many different research areas have been proposed, all of which try to enhance the well-established manufacturing process by either improving formability or reducing costs. Each of the technological variations are first described and then their uses, benefits, drawbacks and applications are discussed and summarized.
