    Abstract

    The effects of nitrogen in both Types 304 and 316 stainless steel were investigated on a production scale and the results are presented in this paper. The test program revealed that nitrogen had an affirmative strengthening effect on wrought austenitic stainless steels. A program establishing hot tensile, stress-rupture, creep, and fatigue data, plus welding experiments, are reported.
