Automotive manufacturers always seek high strength and high formability materials for automotive bodies. Advanced high strength steels (AHSS) are excellent candidates for this purpose. These steels generally show a reasonable degree of formability, in addition to their high strength. One particular type is the twinning-induced plasticity (TWIP) steel, which is a high manganese austenite steel, and represents a second generation in AHSS. In this study, comprehensive deformation analysis of TWIP900CR steel including tensile, bending, Erichsen, and deep drawing of cylindrical cups tests is made. Finite element simulation of U and V shaped bending processes is also performed. Results indicate that the TWIP steel has good mechanical properties and high formability. However, springback is quite significant. The coining force should be considered in order to reduce the amount of springback. For springback prediction, it is found that the Yld2000-2d material model has better prediction capability than the Hill48 model.
