Interface Structure in Ferritic/Austenitic Stainless Steel Bicrystals


Elementary mechanisms of deformation by fatigue in duplex stainless steels bicrystals are studied by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). An attempt is made to correlate the bicrystal macroscopic behaviour with the interphase interface crystallography.
