dc.description.abstract New Dual-Phase (DP) steel sheet with desirable mechanical properties are developed using trialand-error methods that are time-consuming and expensive. Using only micro-structural information, methods to predict stress-strain under tension, reverse yield under compression following tensile loading, and a lower-bound formability limit diagram (FLD) are developed. Mean-field models were used to obtain the flow behavior of the composite under uni-axial loading and reverse yielding, and also serve as descriptors of stress-strain behavior of the ferrite and martensite phases in the finite element models. Representative Volume Elements (RVEs) of the steel were used for the creation of a morphologically realistic Finite Element Model, which in turn allows prediction of flow behavior under uni-axial and plane strain loading. The latter allows estimation of the FLD using the Marciniak-Kuczynski (M-K) and Modified Maximum Force Criterion (MMFC) approaches. Computations with the RVE models afford insights into the relationship between the microstructure and mechanical properties. en_US
