Conventional plasticity models assume that shapes of yield surfaces are remain fixed throughout plastic deformation. However, some experiments show that anisotropy is changing with increasing plastic strain. This paper proposes a constitutive model that describes the evolution of anisotropy, both for the stress directionality and r-values, of sheet metals. The evolution of anisotropy is expressed by the change of the yield function as a function of the effective plastic strain. The anisotropy model is validated by comparing the experimental data on AA6022-T43 aluminium sheet (after Stoughton, T. B. and Yoon, J. W., Int J Plasticity 25 (2009) 1777-1817). This model is incorporated into the Yoshida-Uemori kinematic hardening model to describe both the Bauschinger effect and the anisotropy evolution.
