Abstract

The polycrystalline high purity 316H austenitic stainless steel has been thermo-mechanically treated to produce material with two layers of grain size, one of coarser and the other of finer grains. Small three point bend specimens containing a notch positioned in either the coarser or finer layer have been tested at a constant strain rate and a temperature of -196 degrees C. The results are discussed with respect to the effect of grain size on the underlying deformation between the two layers of different grain size.
