A, Physical metallurgy and materials science, Mar. 2012:p. 843 (Lightweight steels can be divided into austenite-based and ferrite-based according to their matrix microstructures. Typical austenite lightweight steels are transformation-induced plasticity steels or twinning-induced plasticity steels, in which the austenite is stabilized at room temperature)
    • found: MaxPlanckResearch, 2009:special [issue], p. 24 (Lightweight steels that can be calculated. The properties of different steels depend on, for one thing, their crystal lattice structures -- the spatial arrangement of the atoms in the tiny crystals that form when molten steel solidifies. The properties are also determined by how the crystals are arranged, which in turn depends on the structure of the crystals themselves. Adding alloy elements makes certain crystal structures more likely to form. Materials scientists speak of energetically favored crystal lattice structures. This allows the properties of the steel to be fine-tuned. The researchers use thermodynamic calculations to reveal which crystal structures are energetically favored. From these calculations, they concluded that a combination of manganese, silicon and aluminum would probably be suitable for the development of the new lightweight construction steels)

(New light weight steels for auto-body components have been developed to satisfy the requirements of improving passive safety, weight reduction, and energy saving as well as economic mass production. Examples for these steel groups are Dualphase, TRIP and TWIP steels which have been developed and improved by making use of microstructure design and strain induced phase transformations. In all these steels high strength values in combination with an increase of ductility and toughness have been reached by increasing the strain hardening behavior)
