General Information
Design concepts for light-weight structures require tailored materials, which generally combine high strength and low weight. In comparison with aluminium, magnesium, and composites, modern advanced steels give a strong competitive impulse in spite of their higher specific weight. Due to an excellent combination of mechanical properties and formability, multiphase steels, TRIP and TWIP steels offer potential for optimisation in particular in automotive industry. To use the full potential of these steels, accurate tools for the prediction of deformation during the forming process and a proper failure characterisation is required. By means of a multidisciplinary approach involving metal physics, advanced mechanical characterisation, process monitoring and technological tests, constitutive models based on deformation mechanisms will be developed, implemented into the framework of finite elements, verified and validated.
This is a Marie-Curie Outgoing International Fellowship project jointly with Pohang University in South Korea. The successful fellow is Dr Dirk Steglich, who will stay at the Institute of Ferrous Technology at Pohang University during an 18 months outgoing phase followed by a 12 months re-integration phase at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht.
