- Development of new grades of steel
- Mechanical testing of the new grades of steel
Most materials in structural applications require a combination of high strength, toughness, and ductility, which ensures their long lives. In the academic domain, there are many possibilities for designing new steel grades. Many of these grades have the potential to emit extraordinary mechanical properties. The same grades can be potentially used in defence applications and the railways.

Crash safety with advanced high-strength steels continues to increase even as it fuels the economy and increases engine performance, and top speeds, which are a result of the reduced weight.
