Problems of Alloy Design in Pressure Vessel Steels

Abstract

The fracture resistance of alloy steels at ordinary and elevated temperatures and in aggressive environments is at present limited by tendencies toward intergranular fracture at low stress levels. The theses developed here are that these tendencies result from segregated metalloid impurities and that this problem can be alleviated by microstructural control and by adjustments of the alloy content of the steel.
