Surface Microstructure and Corrosion Resistance of 316L Stainless Steel after High Current Pulsed Electron Beam Treatment
HCPEB treatment of 316L stainless steel (SS) was carried out and the microstructure change in the modified surface layer were characterized with optical microscopy and X-ray diffractometry techniques. The evolution regularity of surface craters and grain refinement effect, as well as the preferred orientation of (111) crystal plane occurring in the HCPEB treatment at different working parameters were discussed combining with their influence on corrosion resistance.
