Steel Strength | New Super Steel Defies Conventional Steel Wisdom

A new "super steel" alloy shows increased strength under stressful conditions. The secret is in the molecular structure.

 

Researchers say they’ve made a new “super steel” that challenges conventional wisdom about new steel alloys. Instead of the usual fine-tuned balance of tradeoffs, scientists at the University of Hong Kong and Lawrence Berkeley National Labs say their super steel mitigates the catch-22s in many previous alloys. The secret is in how the molecular structure of the steel works to absorb and nullify stress damage.
