Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) grades offer increased performance in yield and tensile strength. However, to fully utilize this increased strength, automotive beam sections must be designed carefully to avoid buckling of the plate elements in the section. A new software application, Geometric Analysis of Sections—GAS2.0, available through the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), is a tool to aid in this design effort.  Click the AISI link to download the software, and click this link to read more about GAS2.0 at the AHSS Insights blog >>>
