PROMSProject reference: RFSR-CT-2003-00016
Funded under: ECSC-COAL-STEEL-RTD C
Cost efficient metallurgy for the production of novel ultra high strength deep drawable steel grades with high Mn contents from 10 to 25 wt.-%
Total cost:EUR 934 489
EU contribution:EUR 560 693
The proposal addresses a current need for novel ultra high-strength deep-drawable steels with high manganese contents of up to 25 wt.-% and extremely improved properties for lightweight construction.
The aim is the selection and development of suitable technologies of primary and secondary metallurgy for the production of these steels and the determination of tolerable contents of critical tramp and trace elements.
The proposal objectives will be achieved by a combination of theoretical investigations, laboratory development and larger-scale trials.
