Topic: Development of High-Performance Aluminium Alloys Incorporating TWIN Plasticity

Twinning Induced Plasticity (TWIP) steels appeared as a perfect candidate for automotive industries with 1 GPa tensile strength and up to 80% elongation at room temperature (RT). Unfortunately, they are also not free of restrictions for the specified applications since they exhibit poor castability (due to high Mn content), delayed cracking (hydrogen embrittlement) and are difficult to coat. Developing a new composite by introducing twins in the Al matrix to enhance both strength and ductility has been set as the primary aim of the proposal.
