Objective

This project is aimed at deeply investigating the basic TWIP steel metallurgy focusing on the following aspects: recrystallization and grain growth behaviour, precipitation, as well as the metallurgical aspects linking the microstructure to properties of industrial interest such as mechanical properties, forming, welding and coating ability.


Evolution models for the austenite will be modified in order to describe the TWIP steels recrystallization behaviour and allow the design of manufacturing cycles both for hot rolled strip for direct use and cold rolled products.
