Welding and Joining of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) book cover

Welding and Joining of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS)

The Automotive Industry

Advanced high strength steels (AHSS) are key to weight reduction in sectors such as automotive engineering. However, welding can alter the microstructure in the heat affected zone, producing either excessive hardening or softening, depending on alloy design and processing. These local changes create potential weaknesses that can lead to failure. This collection reviews the range of welding and other joining technologies for AHSS and how they can be best used to maximize the potential of AHSS.
