There has been great advancements in the development of the high-strength steel and the need for additional enhancements continue to grow. Various industries have a need for structural components that are lighter and stronger, improve energy efficiencies, reduce emissions and pollution increase safety and cost less to produce, particularly in the automotive industry. A group of researchers in Wayne State University´s College of Engineering have been working to create advanced...

By Soliman, Mohamed Palkowski, Heinz Two Mo-Nb microalloyed transformation-induced-plasticity (TRIP) steels, with Al contents of 0.23 and 0.65, were subjected to several hot-rolling conditions designed to generate different ferrite morphologies and grain sizes. These structures were then cold rolled and TRIP annealed under different heat-treatment conditions. To further develop TRIP steel in terms of strength and ductility, stabilizing retained austenite by isothermal bainitic...

Regulatory News: To meet increasingly strong global demand for quenched and tempered (Q&T) steels, SSAB today announced a SEK 5.3 billion investment program to further develop the company's production base in Sweden and the United States. The investments will result in a major increase of the volume of Q&T steels. "This shows that we have a firm belief in the future. The investment program is part of SSAB's strategic focus to strengthen the product portfolio towards more value...

By Tartaglia, John M Lazzari, Kristen A; Hui, Grace P; Hayrynen, Kathy L This study was conducted to compare the hydrogen embrittlement (HE) resistance of austempered 4340 steel with quenched and tempered (Q&T) 4340 steel with an identical yield strength (YS) of 1340 MPa (194 ksi). A baseline comparison showed that the austempered steel with a lower bainite microstructure exhibited higher hardness, tensile strengths, Charpy V-notch (CVN) impact toughness, and ductility at both low 233 K...

By Trabadelo, V Iturriza, I The microstructure of powder metallurgy T42 high speed steel has been analysed after isothermal annealing. The heat treatment parameters (austenitising temperature, annealing time and annealing temperature) have been chosen aiming at obtaining a moderate hardness (50 HRC) adequate for structural applications. It has been demonstrated that it is possible to attain the targeted hardness through a globular pearlitic matrix microstructure at temperatures markedly...
