Advanced High-Strength Steels Application Guidelines Version 7.0 Online and Ready for UseJuly 1, 2021
WorldAutoSteel has completed and made available online Version 7.0 of its Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) Application Guidelines, the leading source for technical best practices on AHSS metallurgy, forming and joining. WorldAutoSteel member companies make the guidelines—co-authored by MetalForming magazine columnist Daniel Schaeffler, president of Engineering Quality Solutions--freely available for use to the world’s automotive community. And, until 1 October 2021, it will provide a comment box on every page where users can provide feedback.
The new database includes a host of new resources for automotive engineers, design and manufacturing personnel and students of automotive manufacturing, including hundreds of pages of searchable articles that include nearly 1000 citations of original technical research papers, providing a rich library for study. Also included is an explanation of 3rd Gen AHSS and what makes these grades unique, a primer on press hardened steels, and summaries of new research in resistance spot welding for joining AHSS of multiple grades and thicknesses.
