Martensite, the hardest structural component in steels, is responsible for the high hardness in many sharp edge tools. The formation of martensite is a remarkable phenomenon in materials science and smiths have known for at least 3000 years how to make use of it to produce implements such as knives, axes and ploughs. Therefore, martensite has played a crucial role in the development of our civilization.

In my previous column, I promised to give an overview of the role of molybdenum and tungsten in duplex stainless steels (DSS). They are neighbors of chromium in the periodic table (Group 6B) and even more potent than chromium in preventing pitting, which is shown in the familiar PRE-relation:

PRE = %Cr + 3.3×[%Mo + 0.5%W] + 16%N

Designing a steel that is stainless was considered impossible in the beginning of the 1900’s. A renowned German chemist, G Mars, maintained the opinion that creating a stainless steel is impossible because iron is not a noble metal and its oxides are thermodynamically more stable than the pure metal. The year was 1911 but, by the irony of fate, the two first stainless steels were launched the following year.

Some nitrogen has been present in steel as long as steel-making has taken place. This has been unintentional and, in practice, there have been no means of removing or controlling the nitrogen concentration. It was not until the advent of modern process metallurgical techniques such as AOD, VOD and CLU during the 1970’s that nitrogen could be added to the steel melt in a controlled way and nitrogen, therefore, became an important alloying element.

In this series of articles, the role of the elements nickel, manganese, chromium, molybdenum and nitrogen in the design of duplex stainless steels will be described. An optimum balance between austenite and ferrite is accomplished by a clever use of the alloying elements.

For decades, scientists have been struggling to harness the power of the ocean in a commercially viable way. Exploiting wave energy correctly can generate electricity, to run a desalination process, pump water, or power homes, among a host of other tasks. It is considered to be the most concentrated and least variable form of renewable energy.
