D6.1 Comprehensive overview of the project - Executive summary

The present deliverable aims at providing the needed context to understand the motivation of the ToughSteel project, as well as the proposed approach to solve the encountered problem and the expected project outcome. The deliverable describes the main crack-related challenges faced by the sheet metal industry when using advanced high strength steel (AHSS) sheets and how fracture toughness can be a suitable material property to address them. A review of fracture toughness characterization methods for thin metal sheets is included and the project plan to promote the implementation of fracture toughness measurements in the sheet metal industry is presented.
