This paper deals with experimental observations and modeling of plastic deformations of a high strength steel sheet (HSS sheet) under biaxial stress conditions. Using a cruciform specimen of a HSS sheet of 980MPa-TS, experiments of proportional and non-proportional loadings were performed. Numerical simulations for the biaxial stress-strain responses were conducted using a constitutive model of large-strain cyclic plasticity (Yoshida-Uemori model), and the results were compared to the experimental data. The results of numerical simulation show a good agreement with the experimental results, which is attributed to accurate modeling of the backstress evolution of the anisotropic yield surface.
