Effect of Plastic Anisotropy on Forming Limit Prediction
A model based on Marciniak-Kuczynski (M-K) theory  for the prediction of forming limit diagrams (FLDs) for anisotropic sheet metals is presented. The plastic anisotropy is taken into account by the shape of the yield locus generated on the basis of measured crystallographic texture. As a result, not only the material behavior during the monotonic loading can be well described and predicted, but also the complex strain-path changes during the forming process can be taken into account. Examples of predicted FLDs for two aluminum alloys are given. Comparisons with experimental results are presented.
