Project Description

Start date: October 2019

Supervisor: Professor S Brown and Dr N Lavery

Sponsoring company: Tata Steel

Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are widely used in the automotive sector and are particularly important in delivering light weighting opportunities in vehicle manufacturing.

AHSSs have relatively low formability. Increased formability has the potential to allow AHSSs to be used in a wider range of applications.

This project aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of how current AHSSs are designed, and to employ the knowledge gained to develop new products with improved formability.

The research will be laboratory based, with experimental work being conducted on simulators replicating current Tata Steel processing units. The ultimate aim of the work is to develop products in the laboratory, for upscale to production in Tata.

The Research Engineer will:
- Conduct a comprehensive review of product designs to improve formability of AHSS;
- Generate a series of product designs for improved formability;
- Conduct testing on the designs of laboratory case, rolled and annealed product.

We welcome applications from candidates with an Engineering or Physical Science degree (minimum level 2:1), or a combination of degree and equivalent relevant experience to the same level, to join the M2A community of research engineers.
