Ageing after cathodic charging resulted in a number of significant structural changes as the hydrogen diffused out of the specimen. The α′-phase is formed during hydrogen charging of the 316 steel. The weight fraction of the ε-martensite decreased with increasing ageing time. It is suggested that the ε→γ transformation might be taking place during hydrogen release. Techniques for quantitative phase distribution in the stainless steel after various ageing times were used.
