Forming Limit Curves (FLCs) have been used in press shops for decades during die development and more recently as failure criteria when used in conjunction with FEA for part feasibility analysis. Around the world there are different techniques used to determine the FLC. The differences between the techniques lie in tooling, specimen geometry and in the method used to determine the critical strains. A comprehensive study on FLCs of selected AHSS was carried out at ArcelorMittal Global R&D, where the different commonly used techniques and a new technique employing Digital Image Correlation (DIC) were employed to determine the FLCs. This paper presents results of these comparisons.
