Keywords Ultra High-Strength Steel, Transformation Induced Plasticity, Delayed Fracture, Hydrogen Embrittlement
Summary To improve the car impact safety and the fuel efficiency by the reduction of car weight, ultra high-strength steel sheets are applied to car frame parts. However, deterioration of formability and occurrence of hydrogen embrittlement are appeared in the conventional ultra high-strength steel sheets. In our laboratory, development of ultra high-strength steel sheets with excellent formability and hydrogen embrittlement resistant are conducted by the optimum alloying elements and heat treatment processes.
