In the field of material applications, the challenges of material design are to exploit the outstanding mechanical properties of HMnS for the design of crash-relevant lightweight structures, as well as to predict and control the behaviour of the Steels both during forming and under the influence of hydrogen. Three sicentific groups, the so called "Clouds", work on particularly challenging Topics with clearly defined questions. The Clouds are led by young scientists. In a flexible composition supported by scientists from different part Projects, rapid Access to the numerical and experimental methods of the SFB can be achieved. The integration into the controlling committees of the SFB ensures a particularly creative, yet targeted answering of questions, which also go beyond the SFB'S narrower field of work.
