Summary Hollow structures made of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) are increasingly used in the automobile industry for crash and structural components. Generally high pressure hydroforming is used to form these tabular parts, which is a costly manufacturing process due to the high pressure equipment and large tonnage presses required. A new process termed low pressure hydroforming, where a pressurized tube is crushed between two dies, represents a more cost effective alternative due to the lower pressures and die closing forces required.

In this study the low pressure tube hydroforming of one simple and two different complex hollow shapes is investigated. The complexities of the pat1S compared to simple shapes are critically studied and the die filling conditions are investigated and discussed. FUl1hennore the thickness distributions over the circumference of the part during forming are analyzed.
