Nanostructured 316 Stainless Steel Prepared under Traction by Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment
A nanostructured 316 austenitic stainless steel sample was prepared under traction using a new surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT) system. The microstructure of the surface layer of the SMATed sample was characterized using an optical microscope and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Microhardness on the cross-section was investigated by nanoindentation measurement. Results showed that a deeper nanostructured layer was obtained in comparison with that of the sample SMATed without traction.
