A relationship was established between the thermodynamic characteristic of carbides in Cr−Ni steels: the temperature at which carbides are precipitated Tp and the characteristics of susceptibility to ICC (Tmax, τmin). With decreasing Tp the range of susceptibility to ICC shifts toward lower Tmax and higher τmin.
It was found that Tmax can be determined from the thermodynamic characteristics of carbide formation.
