To model the yield point phenomenon of a DDQ steel during uniaxial tension tests in rolling, diagonal, and transverse direction, a kinematic hardening model with a negative back-stress is used. Hill’s planar yield function is used as a base model for the yield function. The negative back-stress induces a local plastic instability that induces a stress drop in tensile direction. The material constants are obtained from experimental results, and then used to a finite element analysis with the same condition using the commercial software Abaqus/Explicit with a user material subroutine. The results from experiments and finite element simulation are compared to verify the method. The kinematic hardening model with a negative back-stress was able to model the onset and propagation of Lüder’s band in all rolling, diagonal, and transverse direction, which leads to the yield point phenomenon.
