Synergistic tellurium–caesium embrittlement of Type 316 stainless steel

Austenitic stainless steels have become important high-temperature structural and containment alloys in applications ranging from industrial processes to energy generation and conversion. The AISI Type-300 series of iron–base austenitic stainless steels, in particular, is widely used as a barrier or primary containment material for both nuclear and fossil… CONTINUE READING
