We provide new approaches for the evaluation of local damage (by micromechanics and microtomography), global and local ductility, delayed fracture, H embrittlement, and crack propagation assessment (in terms of fracture toughness) with the aim to optimise the development and production of advanced metal sheets.
- Edge cracking and stretch-flangeability
- Micro-mechanical characterisation
- Fracture toughness
- Delayed fracture and H embrittlement
- Fatigue resistance
