Practical Guidelines for the Fabrication of High-Performance Austenitic Stainless Steels

In recent years, new highly corrosion-resistant austenitic stainless steels have entered the market- place. They have demonstrated cost-effective performance in a variety of harsh and corrosive environments. They have supplied the materials engineer with alloys for demanding new energy and environmental needs. These new materials are called “High Performance Austenitic Stainless Steels” (HPASS).
