This paper describes a study of the S650 high strength steel material properties including the effect of cold-formed angle. Coupon specimens with different cold-formed angles (90°, 100°, 120°, 140°, 160°and 180°) and different thicknesses (4 mm and 6 mm) were examined. Relationships between cold-formed angle and yield stress as well as tensile stress of the material were determined, based on the tensile coupon test results. Yield and tensile stresses assessed by consid ering the influence of the cold-formed angles were compared with those without considering this influence. Analyses revealed that both yield and tensile stresses decreased with increasing cold-formed angle. Ductile-damage material models available in the finite element analysis software ABAQUS were used to simulate tensile coupon tests. The experimental and numerical results showed good agreements.
