Researchers from the flagship university of the Chelyabinsk Region, together with their Italian colleagues, will be looking for new ways to utilise TRIP steel in metalware industry.

Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University has won a grant of one the major charity foundations of Italy. The foundation will provide funding to support a research project that will look at using TRIP steel in metalware production.

The international project entitled as “Transformation Induced Plasticity STEel for wires and ropes Production/TIP STEP” will be realized by Magnitogorsk researchers in cooperation with the University of Padua in Italy. The two universities have been partners for 6 years now.

The aim of the project is to explore new ways of utilizing the specific properties of steel with a metastable structure in the production of steel wires and ropes.

Today, such steels are used to enhance the car passenger safety, as they are capable of absorbing great impacts – for example, in case of collision or explosion. If a side of the car gets hit by another object, its body will immediately form a protective shell.

“Our aim is to find ways to utilize these effects in a different area, and namely in the production of long-length steel products, such as wires and ropes. We have proved before that, when utilized in metalware industry, such effects can result in new performance capabilities. They include, for example, resistance to wear, impact and fluctuation,” commented Dmitry Konstantinov, acting head of NMSTU’s International Affairs Office.

The funding also covers academic exchanges, which are expected to produce joint publications in high-ranking journals. The universities will be expected to present the results of their research during a series of joint workshops, master classes, and conferences.

The first results should be disclosed during the Magnitogorsk Rolling Practice 2019 conference, which will be held at NMSTU in June 2019.
