Abstract

This paper shows, in a quantitative manner, how the precipitation of niobium carbide in an austenitic stainless steel is affected by varying the amount of deformation prior to ageing. In particular, the extrinsic dislocation content of grain boundaries is shown to govern the overall size distribution of grain-boundary precipitates developed during ageing.
