Search for Evidence of Stacking Faults in Austenitic Stainless Steel Alloys by Neutron Diffraction
Neutron diffraction measurements of strain in austenitic stainless steel alloys are presented to examine whether there are contributions to the shifts from deformation induced stacking faults. Differences between successive orders of reflections are consistent with the presence of stacking faults for 316 stainless steel but not for a NiCrFe steel.
