The use of a plasticity model that properly describes material behavior is of vital importance for accurate numerical simulation of sheet metal forming, especially for the prediction of springback. For that purpose a large-strain cyclic plasticity model, so-called Yoshida-Uemori model, was proposed in the kinematic hardening modeling framework. It is able to describe properly material behavior, such as the Bauschinger effect, the workhardening stagnation, strain-range dependent cyclic workhardening, as well as the degradation of unloading stress-strain slope with increasing plastic strain. The model has been implemented into several FE commercial codes, and it is widely used in sheet metal forming industry. By using it, the accurate springback prediction, especially for high strength steel sheets, is made possible.
