Analysis of Chemical Changes and Microstructure Characterization during Deformation in Ferritic Stainless Steel
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 29 April 2013
Uni- and biaxial tension deformation tests, with different degrees of deformation, have been done on AISI 430 (EN 1.4016) ferritic stainless steel samples, which had both different chemical compositions and had undergone different annealing treatments. The initial and deformed materials were characterized by using electron backscatter diffraction and backscatter electron imaging in a scanning electron microscope together with electron probe microanalysis. The correlation observed among the chemical compositions, annealing treatment, and strain level obtained after deformation is discussed.
