Deformation characteristics of stainless steels
Abstract (Summary)This thesis describes the results of a theoretical and experimental investigation into the deformation characteristics of stainless steels. The title of the chapters is as follows; A new type of forming limit diagram for use with meta-stable stainless steels. A new equation to describe the microstructural transformation of meta- stable austenitic stainless steels during plastic deformation. FEM-simulation of the forming and impact behaviour of stainless steel automobile components. The development of high strain rate equations for stainless steels. The metallurgy and mechanical properties of laser welds between stainless and carbon steels.
