Abstract Scope This work investigates Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) resistance to liquid metal embrittlement (LME) using thermo-mechanical simulation. As ‘next-generation’ steels become available, it is important to understand how processing conditions such as resistance spot welding (RSW) affect material performance. In this study, zinc-coated and uncoated coupons compared the effects of zinc on various Gen3 steels strength and ductility during RSW. The experiment composed of a hot tensile test with variable temperature and head rate to simulate regions throughout the RSW heat affected zone. Upon testing each sample was assessed using qualitative and quantitative test criteria to determine LME sensitivity. This study provides a straightforward testing approach to determine a variety of steels susceptibility to LME.
