The present paper focuses on analyzing the forming capacity of steel blanks with hydroforming process. For this research steel sheets have been in focus for numerical and experimental analysis. The main advantages for this materials are good surface finish, excellent forming capacity and close tolerances, appealing advantages for manufacturers. A finite element model has been developed from data obtained through tensile tests and forming limit curves. A newly developed hydroforming press has been used to carry out the forming experiments. Side-by-side analysis between numerical and experimental results concludes the experiment.
