Nitrogen Porosity in Nitrogen Bearing Austenitic Stainless Steel


Article Preview

The formation of nitrogen gas pores is affected by various factors such as solidification sequence, solubility of nitrogen, cooling rate, melt pressure, nitrogen content etc. Nitrogen porosity in Fe-16Cr-3Ni-9Mn austenitic stainless steel solidifying to primary d-ferrite that can cause nitrogen gas pores was examined. And also the effect of nitrogen content, cooling rate and melt pressure on nitrogen porosity was investigated.
