Mechanical Property of Duplex Stainless Steel with Nanostructured Layer by Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment
A grain size gradient layer material was produced by means of surface mechanical attrition treatment on a UNS S32304 duplex stainless steel. In this study, the mechanical property was characterized by tensile test, while microstructure was investigated by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and electron backscatter diffraction. The deformed layer enhanced both the yield strength and maximum strength with large ductility retained, as revealed by tensile test that the yield stress of 30 minutes processed sample was 702 MPa as compared with 454 MPa of as-annealed sample. The elongation to failure, however, decreased from 0.41 to 0.27.
