Paper Title:
Ductile-to-Brittle Transition Behavior of High-Nitrogen 18Cr-10Mn-0.35N Austenitic Steels Containing Ni and Cu
  Abstract

Ductile-to-brittle transition behavior of high-nitrogen 18Cr-10Mn-0.35N austenitic steels containing Ni and Cu was investigated by means of Charpy impact test and fractographic analysis. The commonly observed fracture mode of the specimens tested at -196 oC was transgranular cleavage-like brittle with flat facets occurring along {111} crystallographic planes, thereby leading to the occurrence of ductile-to-brittle transition. For all the steels investigated in the present study, the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT) measured from Charpy impact tests was much higher by 90 to 135 oC than that predicted by empirical equation strongly depending on N content. The combined addition of Ni and Cu enabled the 18Cr-10Mn-0.35N steels to have the lowest DBTT, which could be explained by relatively high austenite stability and favorable effect of Cu as well as the absence of delta-ferrite.
