This group focuses on the mechanical properties of ultra-high strength steels taking into consideration innovative combinations of chemical composition, thermomechanical processing and novel heat treatment. Materials for characterisation, testing and evaluation are produced using physical and laboratory rolling simulations and also full-scale rolling trials in cooperation with the steel industry. Microstructures are fully characterized quantitatively using advanced light, scanning laser and electron microscopy techniques.
