The paper presents implementation of fracture prediction algorithm for a cold metal forming process simulation in the software QForm. Authors programmed the function for calculation of the criterion proposed by Bai and Wierzbicki. Obtained results of the simulation in QForm for a deep drawing process are compared with results of experiments. A good agreement between the simulation and experiment was achieved.
