MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AT LOW AND HIGH RATE OF STRAIN OF AISI 316L STAINLESS STEEL THERMALLY AGED IN SODIUM
Specimens of solution treated AISI 316L have been submitted to thermal ageing at 500 degrees C in sodium for a time up to 30,000 hours. The specimens have been submitted to tensile tests at strain rates ranging from +- 0.35 x 10**-2 s**-1 to +- 600 s**-1 at 400, 500 and 550 degrees C test temperatures. The effect of thermal ageing is moderate, characterized by an apparent slight dynamic softening at large deformations and medium strain rate probably due to the strain ageing at low strain rate, and by a moderate gain of overall ductility with respect to the as-received material.
