Abstract: Recently, many flexible constitutive equations have been proposed for sheet forming simulations. However, various mechanical tests are required to determine the many material parameters needed for such models. In the present work, effort has been made to investigate the correlation between the polycrystal plasticity based yield loci and those determined from mechanical tests, in order to define yield functions easily and accurately with minimum amount of experimental work. The results for different materials …
