Plastic Heterogeneities Characterisation in 16MND5 RPV Steel by X-Ray Diffraction, Comparison with Finite-Element Approach
This paper reports experimental characterisation of stress heterogeneities in a French RPV bainitic steel (16MND5) determined by X-Ray diffraction during in-situ tensile testing at low temperature (until –150°C). Results are compared successfully to simulation results, obtained by post-processing of Finite Elements computations of realistic 3D aggregates.
