Aluminum alloys are most promising material in automotive applications due to its light weight and high strength to weight ratio. However, its formability is low when compared to automotive steels. The present paper deals with formability analysis of AA 5182 using different simulation parameters. The simulated strain path diagram (SPD) of AA 5182 was plotted using different element (mesh) sizes and hardening laws. It has been found that effect of mesh size is prominent in SPD simulation. Also a strong trend was found when hardening law was changed. The variation of strains with dome height is also studied. © 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
