Abstract:

Results of testing chromium-nickel austenitic steel for stress-rupture strength at 700 degrees in air and in sodium, containing 0.01 and 0.25 weight O2 are presented. The lowering of time prior to the rupture and increase in rate of creep of steel in sodium with 0.25 O2 in comparison with an air medium is fixed. The observed effects are explained by corrosive and absorptive effect of the medium.
