The deformation behavior of a high strength steel sheet in hole expansion tests using a flat-bottomed cylindrical punch has been investigated both experimentally and analytically to clarify the effects of anisotropic yield functions on the accuracy of finite element simulations of hole expansion. The material used in the hole expansion tests is a high strength steel with a tensile strength of 590MPa...
