How to design with advanced high-strength steel for stronger, lighter and safer steel solutions.

Think smart, and think ahead

Because plates made from advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) are less thick but subjected to higher stress levels than conventional steels, the use of this steel places an increased focus on design. The design can literally make — or break — the potential of a long-lasting product.

Modern technology makes it possible to develop new products in a shorter time. Computer-based tools have speeded the process from concept to finished product. Still, all simulations must be verified using the appropriate methods to ensure correct results.

Particularly important points to consider when using AHSS include:

  • Structural design
  • Choice of material
  • Manufacturing methods
  • Welding and other workshop techniques
