AISI 321 austenitic stainless steel is an attractive material for load-bearing applications in nuclear power reactors, boilers, chemical reactors, aircrafts engine and automobile exhaust systems but widespread structural applications are hindered by their relatively low strength and poor tribological properties. The goal of my research is to expand the structural application of AISI 321 austenitic stainless steel through grain refinement to areas where low yield strength hinders their application. The mechanical response and deformation mechanisms of this steel over a wide range of strain rates will be determined. Grain size effect on the thermal properties and corrosion resistance of AISI 321 in selected environments that simulate potential service condition are of interest.
