For years now, automobile manufacturing has used proven, special deep-drawn steels such as steel grade DC06 for structural components that have to stand up to very demanding forming processes. Steel analyses are used that show the lowest C content. Additions of titanium then give the steel unlimited resistance to aging for the guaranteed formability.
Cranes, excavators, and bulldozers are indestructible helpers in bridge, road, and house construction. They are made predominantly of steel, because steel is the only material that can stand up to the challenges in this sector.
As a part of an EU-funded project, a new material model has been developed for the PAM-STAMP and LS-DYNA software programs that better reflects the outstanding forming characteristics of the Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH HSD® steel than conventional models do.
