High-manganese steels

Recently developed high-manganese steels exhibit an exceptional combination of strength and ductility and show great promise e.g. for automotive applications.

Understanding the relationships between manganese and carbon content, microstructure, temperature, defect formation and strain-hardening behavior is critical for further optimization of these steels.
