The main project objective is to identify and demonstrate by test promising processing routes for simultaneous strength and ductility enhancement of metallic alloys for future space transportation structural applications. The proposed activity will focus on enhancing the strength and ductility properties of stainless-steel alloys by using bimodal microstructure with nanoparticle dispersion. Such material may well become the material of choice for the load-bearing structures in future – potentially reusable – launchers. Apart from strength and ductility characterization, the assessment of Stress Corrosion Cracking and corrosion resistance of the processed materials shall be performed.
