Investigation of properties of AISI type 310B alloy sheet at high temperatures

Aug 1950

The alloy having a composition of 25 percent chromium, 20 percent nickel, and 2 percent silicon (AISI Type 310B alloy) is known to be subject to low ductility in the temperature range from 1200 to 1400 degrees F. The present investigation was undertaken to determine by means of tensile tests whether service at 1700 to 1800 degrees F, such as that in combustion chambers of jet engines, would cause further loss of ductility resulting in brittleness at 1200 to 1400 degrees F.
