The constitutive equation of AA6082-T6 sheets is investigated by an extended Rousselier damage model. Previous research is mainly comprised of single-pull test specimens, notched tensile specimens, tensile specimens with a hole, and shear specimens. To decrease the natural material errors, a new specimen is used. In this paper, a clinched joint is regarded as a specimen to calibrate the initial void volume fraction k ω and the shear damage parameter f 0 by using the orthogonal analysis method, which can reduce the simulation times and accuracy. It also reveals that the initial void volume fraction f 0 affects the void volume fraction in the neck and the groove of the clinched joint, and the shear damage parameter k ω affects just the void volume fraction f in the neck of the clinched joint. It checks the force-displacement curve, shape of the clinched joint, and the fracture location, and approves that these damage parameters can describe the deformation process, fracture location, and shape of the clinched joint.
