It is worthy to investigate how it will affect the parameters calibration using an average stress state variable before the practical application of a ductile fracture criterion. In order to study this problem, ten notch specimens of AA7075-T6 sheet were designed to implement the tension tests and a parallel simulation of each test was run to obtain the variation of related variables such as stress triaxiality, Lode parameter and fracture strain. The Lou-Huh criterion was selected to research the prediction error through the difference between the damage value calculated by integral expression and that calculated by analytical expression. Based on the error analysis method, a clear answer was given on how to choose the tension tests of notch specimens in the calibrating process of fracture parameters. The studying results show that the stress state variation of notch specimens has a significant influence on the calibration result. It turns out that how to choose specimens from the ten notch specimens to calibrate the fracture parameters also has big influence on the result. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct an error analysis after the calibration of fracture parameters. Based on the error analysis results, the fracture parameters of AA7075-T6 sheet were optimized and its forming limit diagram (FLD) was deduced based on the optimized parameters. The predictive result of FLD is safe compared with the experimental forming limit results.
