Paper Title:
Effect of Grain Boundary Character Distribution on Stress Corrosion Cracking Behavior in Austenitic Stainless Steels
  Abstract

The effect of grain boundary character distribution (GBCD) on intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) in austenitic stainless steels in high temperature water was verified experimentally. GBCD control using the strain annealing method increased the fraction of low- S coincidence site lattice (CSL) boundaries and the segmentalized network of random grain boundaries in austenitic stainless steels. The fractions of low- S CSL boundaries of GBCD controlled steels were 75–85%, while those of uncontrolled steels were 60–70%. Creviced bent beam tests were conducted at 561 K in pure water containing 8 ppm dissolved oxygen for stress corrosion cracking (SCC) evaluation. The tests revealed that GBCD control suppressed IGSCC initiation or propagation and that cracks were predominantly propagated along random grain boundaries. It is considered that induced lower- S CSL boundaries result in high resistance to IGSCC.
