RWTH Aachen: Otto Kienzle Prize for RWTH Scientists

For his extensive research on the “Modification of the cyclic material behavior of an air-hardened, martensitic forged steel with a medium manganese content by optimizing the alloy composition (LHD forged steel 2)”, Alexander Gramlich from the Institute of Metallurgy at RWTH was awarded the Otto-Kienzle- Price excellent.

The prize, endowed with 2,500 euros, was awarded at the annual conference of the Industrial Association for Massive Forming eV and honors outstanding practical results of a research project in the field of massive forming. It is awarded to researchers who, through their commitment and the practical presentation of their findings, make a significant contribution to increasing the competitiveness of the industry.

Alexander Gramlich studied materials engineering at RWTH Aachen University and did a research stay at Oxford University in England during his studies. Since 2017 he has been working as a doctoral student at the Chair and Institute for Metallurgy at RWTH.
