Effect of Magnetic Field on Isothermal Martensitic Transformation in SUS304L Stainless Steel


Article Preview

We have found that solution-treated or sensitized SUS304L stainless steel transforms isothermally from the γ (fcc)-phase to the α' (bcc) martensite via the ε' (hcp) martensite, that is, the amount of the α'-phase increases with increasing holding time. By applying magnetic field, the α' martensite can be induced in the ε'-plate when the steel has a sufficiently large ε' plate formed beforehand by isothermal holding. However, the α' martensite cannot be induced by magnetic field in the ε'-plate formed beforehand by a deformation-induced transformation.
