Plastic deformation induces damage in Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). Therefore damage development in these steels shall be studied and incorporated in the simulations for accurate failure predictions in forming processes and for determination of the product properties after forming. An efficient anisotropic damage model suitable for large scale metal forming applications has been developed. The standard Lemaitre anisotropic damage model was modified to incorporate lower damage evolution under compression, strain rate dependency in damage and Material Induced Anisotropic Damage (MIAD). Viscoplastic regularization proved to be effective in removing the pathological mesh dependence of the presented local damage model. Anisotropic damage development was characterized in Dual Phase (DP600) steel. The damage model parameters for DP600 were determined from experiments. The Modified Lemaitre’s (ML) anisotropic damage model was validated with experiments.
