Abstract:

This technical report reviews the available experimental data and information on the thermal linear expansion of nine AISI stainless steels and presents the recommended values from 10 K to near the melting point of the stainless steels. The nine selected stainless steels are AISI 303, 304, 304L, 316, 317, 321, 347, 410, and 430. The recommended values include the percent thermal linear expansion, the instantaneous coefficient, and the mean coefficient of thermal linear expansion. These values are generated as a result of critical evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of the available data and information. Data are synthesized for those stainless steels and temperature values for which no data are available. General background information on the stainless steels is given. The techniques of data evaluation, analysis, and synthesis used in the generation of recommended values is outlined.
