Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 4)


Austenitic stainless steels are used extensively in the construction of cryogenic equipment. Since information regarding the magnetic properties of the austenitic 300 series steels at low temperature is incomplete, research was carried out to determine these properties.
