partitioned (Q&P) steels are one family of steels that has received some recent
interest for high-strength automotive applications. Previous Q&P steel
research has usually focused on cold rolled and annealed products. In the
current study, the thermomechanical profile was modified such that Q&P
simulations were developed to characterize material as if it
might be produced
directly from a hot strip mill.
