New DFG project on memory steel

The Institute for Steel Construction is pleased to have received funding from Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) - German Research Foundation to carry on basic research on "Influence of precipitates on stress relaxation and fatigue behavior of prestressed Fe-based Shape Memory Alloys (Memory-Steel)". The project is in collaboration with Dr.-Ing. Malte Vollmer and Prof. Thomas Niendorf the Chair of "Metallic Materials" at University of Kassel. We would like to thanks DFG for the trust and looking forward to starting this exciting research.
