Mechanical testing of austenitic steel welded joints
In the field of material properties and structural behaviour of LMFBR reactor components under normal operation and accident conditions, the CEC has promoted an experimental study on the mechanical properties of welded austenitic steel type AISI 316L. Five different welding methods have been examined. The manufacture and characterisation of the welds has been described in a separate report (EUR 13029). The present report gives the results of four different mechanical tests carried out on the weld material. The comparison of results proved that, at the present state of development, the vacuum electron beam method seems to have clear advantages as compared with the other methods investigated.
