Summary Advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are a class of steel used primarily in sheet form for automotive structures. The microstructures of the types of steel in this classification were initially multiphase, with ferrite as the dominant phase; however, grades introduced more recently have been fully martensitic or based on austenite. This chapter initially introduces the requirements of an automotive body structure, then the different classes of AHSS that have been used in the automotive industry and their typical characteristic tensile properties. The specific properties that are required for steel used in automotive body structures are subsequently described, including formability and crash behaviour. Finally, some of the current and future trends in the development of new steel grades are discussed.
