Abstract: The aim of this paper is to present the basic concepts of advanced high strength steels (AHSS) for use in the automobile industry, including chemical composition design, microstructure and mechanical properties development during thermomechanical processing, production technology characterisation, potential applications and performance in service. AHSS steels are considered to be the major materials for future applications in this production sector. As opposed to the cold formable single phase deep-drawable grades, the mechanical properties of AHSS steels are controlled by many factors, including: phase composition and distribution in the overall microstructure, volume fraction, size and morphology of phase constituents, as well as stability of metastable constituents. The main feature of these steels is that they do not permit to rely on the well-established traditional microstructure-properties relationships. Therefore, many different alloy concepts and alternative processing routes are still under development by different steel producers for comparable steel grades.

Abstract: Laser welding will be an important joining technique for magnesium alloys with their increasing applications in aerospace, aircraft, automotive, electronics and other industries In this document the research and progress in laser welding of magnesium alloys are critically reviewed from different perspectives To date, two types of industrial lasers, carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG), have been used to investigate the weldability of magnesium alloys Some important laser processing parameters and their effects on weld quality are discussed The microstructure and metallurgical defects encountered in laser welding of magnesium alloys, such as porosity, cracking, oxide inclusions and loss of alloying elements are described Mechanical properties of welds such as hardness, tensile and fatigue strength, and other important structural properties are discussed The aim of the report is to review the recent progress in laser welding of magnesium alloys and to provide a basis for follow-on research

Abstract: This paper constitutes a broad survey of the physical, mechanical and corrosion properties of Fe3Al alloys, as well as a review of principal processing methods. This class of alloys, once thought to be inherently brittle, is shown to possess moderate ductility, provided that mechanical testing is carried out in an inert environment. Methods to improve mechanical properties by alloying and microstructural control are described. The influence of alloying elements on corrosion and stress corrosion resistance and weldability also is reviewed.
