Abstract:

The capability to conduct dynamic tensile testing of sheet steels was established and the influence of strain rate on strengthening mechanisms in sheet steels was investigated in this work. Several different automotive sheet steels were studied, including interstitial free IF steel, high strength low alloy HSLA steel, dual phase steel and transformation induced plasticity TRIP steel.
