The main objectives of the research presented here were to provide useful information about the mechanical and metallurgical characteristics of a wide range of high-strength steels as well as the assessment of the forming limit of these materials after certain surface treatments. These parts of the project are related to two topics. The first one is mainly focused on the evaluation of the formability of steel sheet mechanically and thermally worked. The second topic refers to physical and rheological analysis of phenomena interpreting the behaviour of steels and it is focused on the theoretical approach relating the limit straining of the sheet with plastic deformation and surface integrity changes imparted by the various surface treatments.
