At the centre of investigations were three heat treated states of StE 460 (normalized, thermomechanical rolled, quenched and tempered) in several sheet metal thickness. The mechanical properties were analyzed with the help of tensile tests and conventional and charpy impact tests. Crack propagation tests were carried out to characterize the fracture mechanical properties under cyclic loading at room temperature and at two kinds of stress ratio. The second part of research investigations was the description of the produced microstructure.
