Mechanical Properties of High-Strength 301 Stainless Steel Sheet at 70, -320, and -423°F in the Base Metal and Welded Joint Configurations
The use of cryogenic propellants in current and proposed missiles and space vehicles has stimulated interest inthe low-temperature properties of cold-worked 301 stainless steel for a variety of structural applications. This alloy is of particular interest because of the favorable combination of properties which it exhibits over a wide range of temperature which suit it for use in missile and space vehicle applications. These favorable properties include the retention of toughness at low temperature, good strength-to-density characteristics, excellent welda-bility, and excellent corrosion resistance.
