Abstract: A new form of yield theory considering an anisotropic parameter for sheet metals has been derived and proposed in this technical paper. In addition to this, the flow rule with anisotropic parameter for sheet metals is introduced. The mathematical expression for the calculation of flow stress in the case of simple compression-tension, tension-tension test is deduced from the yield theory for the sheet metals. The developed yield theory is used for obtaining the mathematical expressions of their limit strains in connection with the swift's plastic instability condition for diffuse necking and the Hill's plastic instability condition for localised necking. Using the flow rule and the experimental parameters, the forming limit curves for the various sheet metals using sheet metal parameters namely the shape of the yield curve (m-value) and relative density, have been obtained. It has been particularly found that the FLC curve is affected by the relative density (R-value) and yield criterion constant (m-value).
