Study of microstructural evolution and its effects on magnetic and electric properties of two stainless steels (ODS-Eurofer and AISI 201)

Abstract

This project aims to investigate the microstructural evolution and its effects on magnetic and electric properties of two distinct stainless steels: ODS-Eurofer steel and AISI 201 steel. ODS-Eurofer ferritic-martensitic steel is a potential candidate for structural applications in fusion reactors. AISI 201 austenitic stainless steel replaces AISI 304 steel in applications that demand a lower corrosion resistance. Regarding ODS-Eurofer steel, the focus of this study relies on the behavior of 80% rolled material with further annealing in high temperatures (between 1200oC and 1350oC), when possibly occurs the coalescence of fine Y2O3 particles. Regarding AISI 201 steel, the study relies on the deformation induced martensite and its reversion, with emphasis on this last phenomenon and its relation with the recrystallization of this material. After thickness reduction as high as 60%, the AISI 201 steel will be annealed at several temperatures up to 800oC. Concerning magnetic and electric properties the main parameters to be evaluated are the coercive field and residual electrical resistivity, respectively. Magnetic and electric measurements are very sensitive to microstructural changes. In addition, the samples will be also characterized by the following techniques: Vickers microhardness testing, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction, and electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD).
