Effect of chromium and molybdenum segregation on the ridging behavior of type 434 stainless steel

Mechanical Behavior


Microradiographic observations were used to reveal that a band-like segregation pattern of chromium and molybdenum is normally produced in Type 434 stainless steel (17 pct Cr, 1 pct Mo) as a consequence of hot rolling this steel in a temperature range in which two phases, austenite and ferrite, are stable. The effect of this segregation pattern in contributing to ridging by aiding the retention of a band-like distribution of grains having a cube-on-face orientation in finished sheet of this steel is discussed.
