Abstract High-manganese twinning induced plasticity steels are a promising alternative for enhancing crashworthiness in automobiles due to their combined high strength and ductility. In this work, we argue that their so-called exceptional tensile strength and ductility are not directly relevant from a component design perspective, but those properties enable tailoring the material response for a given requirement. For this purpose, we compared their crashworthiness with that of an industrial… CONTINUE READING
