Mechanical Properties and Plastic Anisotropy of the Quenchenable High Strength Steel 22MnB5 at Elevated Temperatures
Within the scope of this paper, the formability of the press hardenable steel 22MnB5 will be investigated with regard to its anisotropic properties at elevated temperatures under the processing conditions of hot stamping. Two different experimental setups have been realized, one at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg using conductive heating, and the other one at the University of Padova using inductive heating. Both of these equipments enable the characterization of the material anisotropy behavior by performing uniaxial, hot tensile tests in the range of hot stamping temperatures.
