1 CanmetMATERIALS Advanced Materials Processing, Natural Resources Canada, Hamilton, Ontario L8P 0A5.
The first part of this presentation will be an introduction to the new CanmetMATERIALS research laboratory (CMAT) constructed in Hamilton, Ontario in 2010. CMAT is a part of Natural Resources of Canada (NRCAN) and is the main federal laboratory for structural materials research in the areas of clean energy, pipelines, transport and automotive, nuclear power production and defence. More than 90% of CMAT’s research portfolio is carried out in conjunction with industrial and university partners in Canada and abroad.
In the second part we will present results from several ongoing studies at CanmetMATERIALS on the development of Vanadium microalloying technology for Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) applications in automotive body in white, lightweight vehicle armour and air cooled forgings for linepipe fittings. Data obtained on a wide range of steel grades including Dual Phase (DP), microalloyed ferrite, TWinning Induced Plasticity (TWIP) and bainitic X80-X100 grades will be illustrated. Attention will be drawn to several effects we observe which cannot be satisfactorily explained by current theory and require more intensive study – ideas for future lines of research will be discussed.
