One of the common ways of combating sensitization to intergranular fracture in austenitic stainless steels is to make stabilizing additions of elements, such as Nb or Ti, which are stronger carbide formers than Cr. Titanium-modified (TiM) Type 316 stainless steel and other titanium-containing austenitic stainless steels are being considered as candidate materials for near-term fusion devices, and among the critical properties are their strength, ductility and swelling resistance at elevated temperatures. Unfortunately, very little seems to be known with respect to the H compatibility of candidate 316 TiM stainless steel when exposed to either irradiation or thermal aging. The purpose of this investigation was to study the martensitic phase transitions of sensitized Titanium-modified 316 stainless steel resulting from cathodic hydrogen charging in the absence of any externally applied stress.
