Advance high strength (AHS) steel has been widely used in the automotive industry and order to reduce the weight of automotive components that effect to reduce fuel consumption, but vehicles maintain safety. However, forming process with AHS steel has many problems which the main defect was spring-back. Therefore, the usage of finite element (FE) method simulation with kinematic hardening materials model sustains and improve production processes. Yoshida-Uemori (Y-U) model is the one of

Consequencely, this work has been research on AHS steel as the NSC980D grade for automotive components in the drawing process and applied FE simulation with Y-U model to improve the production process. Moreover, NSC980D steel was inspected in tension-compression and tensile tests were proceeded. As a result, material parameters from testing simulate with designed die and improvement were shown. Finally, comparing FE simulation forming with experiment forming, showed FE simulation with Y-U model is suitable for prediction and process improvement.
