In this article the clinched joints of DP600 type steel sheets were examined by finite element method. This type of steel is a dual phase (ferritic-martensitic,) advanced high strength steel which is used mainly by the automotive industry. FE analysis was performed for further analysis and for the deeper understanding of the behaviour of the joint. The effects of the planar anisotropy, spring back and different hardening laws were examined by a 2D axisymmetric FE model in ANSYS.
