The aim of this work is to create material model for aluminum material AW 5754 H11 for numerical simulation, which is widely used in automotive industry. For purpose of verification material model the deep drawing cup test was carried up, and measured parameters were punch force, thickness distribution and ear profile. Results from numerical simulation were validated by real experiment with regard to predict accuracy in changes of thickness and ear profile.
