Beneficial Effects Induced by High Temperature Cycling in Aged Duplex Stainless Steel

Abstract:

Article Preview

The cyclic behavior of type DIN 1.4460 duplex stainless steels in as-received and aged conditions was investigated at room temperature and at 500°C. At room temperature, the aged samples showed embrittlement effects such as loss of toughness and reduction of fatigue life. At 500°C, beneficial effects of the synergy between temperature and strain cycling were observed. It is proposed that at high temperature in the ferrite the strain cycling can decompose the chemical composition fluctuations, promoting a demodulation of the spinodal decomposition formed by aging.
