The project »Technological applicability od HSS steels and Al alloys« was a result of our successful participation in the public call for proposals »research vouchers 2012« as part of »Operational Programme for Strengthening Regional Development Potentials for the period 2007 – 2013«.
The project aimed at researching the use of high strenth steels and aluminium alloys in the components representing TPV targeted products. In this research, our interest was focused on mechanical and physical properties of the HSS steels in view ot their chemical structure and microstructure and mechanical charateristics of joints, produced microstructures and galvanic corrosion.
The project took place in years 2013 – 2015. The Institute for Metal Materials and Technologies – IMT Ljubljana was directly involved in the research.
