TRIP steels are one of the most attractive materials developed in the last few decades by the steel industry. They are part of the AHSS family (Advanced High-Strength Steels), steels of which the yield strength is higher than 550 MPa, but often with a limited ductility. Nevertheless, TRIP steels also exhibit high ductility. In fact, the acronym “TRIP” stands for Transformation Induced Plasticity because an enhanced formability comes from the transformation of retained austenite to martensite during plastic deformation.
Because of this improved formability, TRIP steels can be used to produce more complicated parts than other AHSS and they offer, with thinner panel thickness, superior mechanical response. Moreover, their high energy absorption capacity and fatigue strength make them particularly suitable for safety parts, such as bumper bars, impact beams, B-pillars and reinforcements. Therefore, these advanced steels allow automotive designers to optimize weight and structural performance.
In this Special Issue, an open access forum is provided for publishing original papers that investigate on various aspects of alloy steels, including both research papers and reviews, informing readers on the latest ongoing research and development activities, on the current state-of-the-art, and also on prior history.
The Special Issue will include (but will not be limited to) the following topics: Influence of alloying elements, comprising standard and innovative grades; microstructures and their development, including phase equilibrium and transformations, thermo-mechanical stability, and heat treatments; mechanical performance, with strength, toughness, impact, and fatigue behavior; formability, covering rolling, stamping, and welding.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
