Increasing the stability of austenite by programmed loading


The stability of austenite under strain can be increased by programmed loading in the temperature range where the stability of heated austenite is highest and the diffusion mobility of lattice defects is adequate. For some parts of austenitic steels (of the Kh18NI0T type) operating at low temperatures under stress, programmed loading can be used as the final treatment.
