Master internship Batch Annealing and Tempering Studies at R&D
Are you looking for an challenging master internship at one of the Netherlands biggest production companies? Are you interested in characterization of microstructures and would you like to be part of our R&D department? Then we are looking for you!
What are you going to do?
The project will focus on mechanical and microstructural studies together with modelling of Mn and C diffusion in a hot-rolled (HR) medium manganese steel with the broad aim of developing the knowledge of microstructure-property relations in the area. The specific objectives are the following:
To optimize the phase fractions and stability of retained austenite of the HR medium Mn steel via batch annealing in order to achieve in excess of 1200 MPa ultimate tensile strength with >12% total elongation and good edge/local ductility (hole expansion capacity and bendability)
To study the effects of tempering of the as-batch annealed microstructure via heat-to-coat thermal cycles on the mechanical properties
To use phase field modelling for microstructure predictions and their experimental validation
