Second HIPEBA Technical Deliverable (2.1) Now Available

05 Feb Second HIPEBA Technical Deliverable (2.1) Now Available

The second technical deliverable of HIPEBA -included in Work Package 2-, expands on the technical problems of Road Restraint Systems (RRS), first presented in Technical Deliverable 1.1 and is available on the project’s website. In this report, the most important properties of AHSS (Advanced High Strength Steel) in applications in RRS (Road Restraint Systems) are reviewed. A mechanical characterisation was undertaken to gain knowledge of the most important properties of AHSS. This characterisation had two aims: one, to obtain the mechanical properties of AHSS in order to run simulations in further tasks and two, to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of using AHSS to define criteria of steel selection.
