Section B—Wrought Chromium-Nickel Steels


The austenitic wrought chromium-nickel steels for which data are given in Section B of Part I are those which contain basically the following: 17 per cent chromium, 7 per cent nickel, 18 per cent chromium, 8 per cent nickel, 24 per cent chromium, 12 per cent nickel, and 25 per cent chromium, 20 per cent nickel. The detailed chemical compositions of these steels appear in Table XIX. Information as to their physical properties, and on the forging and heat-treating practices to be used in fabricating these chromium-nickel steels is given in Table XX. The mechanical properties of the steels in various wrought forms, such as bars, plates, wire, strip, sheet, seamless tubes, etc., are shown in Tables XXI to XXXIV. The creep characteristics and short-time tensile properties at elevated temperatures are presented graphically by the curves in Figs. 12 to 26.
