LONDON, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Since January 2010, both demand and prices on the global Vanadium market started to improve. Nevertheless, Vanadium is under increasing pressure from Niobium, particularly in HSLA steels. Taking into account the positive growth potential of HSLA steels in emerging markets, Vanadium industry will allegedly be affected by the trend. Over the last decade Vanadium prices have reached relatively high levels. The projected strong demand and upward pressure on the...

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The global demand for lighter vehicles with better fuel economy has continuously increased in recent years. Particularly in the US, this year's drastic rise to record gas prices has made MPG become a more important part of what consumers look for in a new vehicle. In order to reduce the vehicle weight while improving the crashworthiness, the use of high-strength steel (HSS), and advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) is gaining in importance....

By Mintz, B Gunawardana, W D; Su, H Aluminium in solution in the ferrite in ferrite/pearlite steels has been found to have little influence on strength of the ferrite probably because up-till recently it has been added in very small amounts (0.02-0.08 wt-%Al) as a grain refining addition. There is indeed some doubt in the literature as to whether Al can solid solution harden. This lack of knowledge has not been important while Al additions are small but recently Al has been added in much...

By Mintz, B Gunawardana, W D; Su, H The influence of Al on the strength and impact properties of hot rolled plain C-Mn low S steels has been examined at two C levels, 0.02 and 0.1% and two N levels, 0.001 and 0.004-0.005% (where percentage is to be taken as wt-%). It has been found that Al is an excellent element to add to hot rolled steels, an addition of 0.2% to a plain 0.1C-1.4Mn steel with 0.004-0.005%N resulting in an impact transition temperature of -95[degrees]C at a strength level...

By Winkler, S Thompson, A; Salisbury, C; Worswick, M; Van Riemsdijk, I; Mayer, R In order to understand the crashworthiness and formability of advance high-strength steels, the effects of strain rate and temperature on the constitutive response of DP 600 and DP 780 steel tubes were investigated and compared with commercial drawing quality (DQ) and high strength low alloy (HSLA) 350 steel tubes. Uniaxial tensile tests were conducted at quasi-static (QS) (0.003 and 0.1 s^sup -1^),...
