Abstract: This paper investigates the formability of magnesium-based alloy (AZ31B) performed by loading paths for the quadrilateral tubular components fabricated by the warm tube hydroforming (THF) process. In this study, three loading path types and their formability were investigated via ABAQUS for simulation. Hydroforming experiments were carried out at 270 ± 10° C to fabricate the components for verification of the simulation results. The thickness distribution of simulation result and THF experiment of loading path Type III-3 indicated that the results obtained from simulation conform to the experimental results. The occurrence of wrinkling and local necking during warm THF process can be minimized.
