  • Designing Third Generation Advanced High - Strength Steel for Demanding Automotive Applications, July/August 2016 by Staff

    By effectively mitigating the historical paradox between strength and ductility, a new alloy enables an entire family of automotive sheet steel to meet today's lightweight automobile requirements. 

    The has long been a struggle among materials scientists over the paradoxical relationship between a metal's strength and ductility. The inability of traditional materials to meet the dual demands of both high-strength and easy formability has opened the door for alternative materials in applications such as automotive lightweighting. Existing advanced high strength steels (AHSS) require a tradeoff: High strength parts can either be designed using more limited geometries or produced using more expensive methods such as hot stamping. Both approaches are less than ideal.
