BASEFORM – Bainite and second-phase engineering for improved formability


Initial Position: Development of advanced high strength steels with good cold formability and edge-cracking behaviour for body-in-white application. RFCS Research Project: Understanding the formation mechanisms of morphology (size, shape, discribution) of second phase constituents (martensite, retained austenite, carbides) in bainitic matrix. Understanding the microstructure-mechanical properties relationship in banitic steels with secondary phases. Understanding the role
