Applying EWI’s H-coupon Test to Galvanized GEN3 AHSS

February 22, 2023

The H-coupon test, developed a few years ago to evaluate cracking behavior in spot-welded advanced high-strength steels (AHSS), has recently been applied to galvanized third generation AHSS. Two types of cracking have been observed in the tests of these steel grades – interfacial and zinc liquid metal embrittlement (LME).

This research is discussed in Application of H-coupon Testing for Assessing Cracking During Spot Welding of Third Generation Steels, written by Applications Engineer Rafael Giorjão and Senior Technology Leader Jerry Gould.
