During the last ten years, enormous research activity had been carried out to increase the strength properties of engineering materials. Steels are widely used in heavy stressed constructions such as bridges, cranes or different supports in vehicles. In these applications, low carbon low alloyed steels can be used in order to ensure further processing by welding or cold forming. The purpose of this paper is to give an overview about novel technics applied in steel production to obtain high strength steels.


Keywords: high strength steels, ultrafine grained steels, micro-alloyed steel, precipitation strengthening,
