Tension-Compression Tests for Springback Prediction of AHS Steel Using the Yoshida-Uemori Model
In sheet metal formingprocess of automotive parts, springback effect is crucial, in particular, foradvanced high strength (AHS) steels. Most structural components of new vehiclesshow very complex shapes that require multi–step forming procedures.Therefore, finite element (FE)simulation has been often used to describe plasticdeformation behavior and springback occurrence of formed metal sheets.Recently, the kinematic hardening Yoshida–Uemorimodel has showed great capability for predicting elastic recovery of material. In this work, the AHSsteel grade JSC780Y wasinvestigated, in which tension–compressiontests were carried out. From resulted cyclic stress–strainresponses, material parameters were identified using different fitting methods.Determined model parameters were firstly verified by using simulations of 1–elementmodel. The most appropriate parameter set was thenobtained. Finally, a Hat-Shape forming test was performed and springback waspredicted and compared with experimental results.
