Materials Advancements At Wayne State May Lead To New, Livesaving Steel

A group of researchers in Wayne State University’s College of Engineering has been working to create advanced materials with high-yield strength, fracture toughness and ductility. Their efforts have led to the development of a new material consisting of bainitic steels and austempered ductile iron that has all these characteristics, ultimately resisting fatigue that can cause fractures in materials often with catastrophic consequences.
