Neutron Diffraction Study of Duplex Stainless Steel during Loading at 200°C
In this work, the influence of temperature on the mechanical properties of duplex steel is studied by performing monotonic “in situ” tension and compression at 200oC. The lattice strains in both phases were measured using the time-of-flight neutron diffraction method (at the ISIS spallation neutron source, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK). A thermal-elastic selfconsistent model was used to predict the expansion of the interplanar spacings during heating to 200°C. Subsequently, the variation of phase stresses during tensile and compressive loading at room temperature (20°C) and at 200°C were theoretically calculated by the elastoplastic self-consistent model. Comparing the model data with experimental results the critical resolved shear stresses and work hardening parameters were determined individually in each phase of the DSS. Finally, the yield stresses in each phase of the studied steel have been estimated. It was found that both yield points (of austenite and ferrite) are lower at 200°C than those at room temperature.
