One of the needs of modern sheet metal forming is reliable knowledge about the formability of a given material. In sheet metal forming formability is usually related to the ability to have high values of the strain until failure, where this failure can be local necking and/or fracture. This high values of strain is called limiting strain which is not only influenced by material but also by the geometric features of sheet material. In this work, influence of hole shape and the patterns in which holes are arranged on limiting strain, are studied using experimental and numerical techniques. Both experimental and numerical analysis reveals the same.
