Motivation and aims:
An important criterion for the usage of materials such as deep drawing steels is their mechanical behavior. The research training group 1483 concentrates on the simulation of process chains in raw material production and subsequent material processing. In this work, a simple non alloyed deep drawing steel is investigated. First, the microstructure is analyzed, then small scaled mechanical experiments on selected microstructural units are performed. In addition the microstructure evolution during heat treatments is investigated. The results are used in cooperation with other projects from research area A and serve as input and verification data for the simulations of the process steps rolling, annealing and deep drawing.
