Niobium microalloyed automotive sheet steel: a cost effective solution to the challenges of modern body engineering

International Symposium on Niobium Microalloyed Sheet Steel for Automotive Application

Recent lightweight body engineering makes massive use of modern high strength steel. This approach simultaneously enables moderate weight and cost reduction and nevertheless meeting the targets of emission control, safety, driving performance and lifetime. The full recyclablity of steel is an additional asset with regard to end-of-vehicle-life regulations… (AU)
