Springback is one of the most common defects found in the metal forming of automotive parts. There are three conditions which can be considered as springback i.e. flange angle change, sidewall curl and twist springback and among them, twist springback is the most complicated problem. This study will focuses on the development of finite element simulation model of the twist forming process. The main aim of this project is to investigate the parameters that may affect the twist springback. Few parameters including twist angle, hardening constant and thickness are explored using finite element (FE) software ANSYS Workbench (16.0). The rectangular mild strips are used to form the twist forming. The standard material properties and stress-strain curve of mild steel had been used to get the springback prediction. The results of springback were measured by the difference of the bending angles before and after unloading process. The results were then be validated with the research made of Dwivedi et al., (2002). The results show that the springback angle reduces as the thickness of strips are increased and also as the angle of twist increases.
