This study presents a proposed failure criterion for evaluation of stainless steel 316L plates subjected to multiaxial stresses. Effects of membrane and bending stresses are investigated. The experimental data used in the development of the failure criterion is based on 316L forming limit diagram. Strains obtained from the forming limit diagram are used for calculation of stresses and triaxiality factors. The proposed failure criterion is compared with those available in the literature. Effects of bending stresses on the ductility of 316L plates are discussed.
