  • Effect of Manganese during the stabilization of austenite in Quench and Partitioning (Q&P) Steels 

    Carpio Garza, Marcel Francisco; Calvo Muñoz, Jessica; Cabrera Marrero, José M.
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Nowadays, automobile emissions are one of the leading causes of air contamination. In this regard, the weight reduction of the vehicles structures and parts is vital, while the passenger’s safety is the first issue. ...
  • Fracture mechanics based modelling of failure in advanced high strength steels 

    Jonsén, Par; Frómeta Gutiérrez, David; Casellas Padró, Daniel (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In the last decade, the favorable properties of the press hardening process for advanced high strength steel (AHSS) have increased the demands concerning passenger safety and lightweight design. AHSS show excellent mechanical ...
  • Determination of the essential work of fracture at high strain rates 

    Frómeta Gutiérrez, David; Casellas Padró, Daniel; Jonsén, Par (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    During the last decades, the use of ultra-high strength steel (UHSS) has increased as its favorable ratio between strength and mass allows the design of lighter body-in-white while maintaining passenger safety. Modeling ...
  • Small-scale assessment of corrosion-induced damage in hardmetals 

    Zheng, Yafeng; Fargas Ribas, Gemma; Besharatloo, Hossein; Roa Rovira, Joan Josep; Lavigne, Olivier; Llanes Pitarch, Luis Miguel (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the effect of corrosion-induced damage on the mechanical response of hardmetals was evaluated at small-scale level by means of nanoindentation and nanoscratch. Damage was introduced in a controlled way through ...
