Twinning Induced Plasticity steels (TWIP)

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are designed to provide an efficient answer to the actual demands from the automotive industry, with more and more strict safety regulations, constant weight reduction demands, CO2 emission restrictions and good forming properties, all of them within a reasonable cost. They are complex and sophisticated materials with a carefully selected chemical composition and multiphase structures as a result of precise and controlled heating and cooling processes. The hardening mechanisms involved for reaching the range of properties such as strength, ductility, fracture toughness and fatigue are extraordinarily diverse.
