Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The development of nitrogen enriched austenitic stainless steels has been a source of recent interest due to the abundant availability of nitrogen and by the manner in which nitrogen contributes several beneficial material property effects over a wide service temperature range. It is widely recognised that, in the case of nitrogen enriched 316L, improvements in mechanical property and corrosion resistance are derived from the interstitial influence of nitrogen within the matrix. Consequently, having the best combination of strength, toughness and corrosion resistance relationships found in any group of steels, nitrogen strengthened austenitic stainless steels have tremendous scope for application in areas as diverse as the cryogenic, nuclear, power generation and chemical transportation industries.
