High strength steels have been intensively applied to autobodies to improve crashworthiness without increasing the body weight under a strong pressure of the requirements for fuel consumption, energy saving and crashworthiness. One of the critical problems of the usage of high strength steels for autobodies is a deterioration of press formabililty with increasing the strength. Different types of high strength steels have been developed at Nippon Steel Corporation to respond to the requirements of auto-companies. The features of these high strength steels with different kind of press formability will be summarized here with their performances of crash energy absorption property, fatigue strength and so on.
