"Mechanical behavior of advanced high strength steels at high strain rates"
Funding: China Scholarship Council
Project period: 2016 – 2020
Principal Investigator: Dr. Ilchat Sabirov (ilchat.sabirov(AT)imdea.org)
This main objective of this project is to study high strain rate mechanical behavior of novel Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS). The results of these investigations will greatly contribute to understanding of mechanical behavior of the AHSS and help to reduce the dimensions of the AHSS components used in the automotive industry, and subsequently to reduce the weight of the cars while maintaining or improving their safety.
