DP grades with improved formability
Objective: Thin sheet dual-phase grades - uncoated, electro-galvanized or hot-dip galvanized - are among the most important AHSS grades for the automotive industry. Substantial research and development work was done and grades with minimum tensile strength levels up to 1400MPa are available.
Because fundamental understanding of the impact of different microstructure constituents on the formability is still missing, the project will concentrate on this relation based on phenomenological and more fundamental models. As a result of this work DP grades with an optimised microstructure will be suggested and material with an improved strength - formability balance will be produced.
