Orientation of Rolled Steel Effect on Grain Boundaries

Mark Rawson, Gonzaga University
Travis Tran, Gonzaga University

Abstract

Mark Rawson and Travis Tran are studying under Dr. Ferro from Gonzaga University to observe the effects that the orientation of rolled steel has on the grain boundaries after fatique. In order to conduct this research we are fatique sampling orientations parallel and perpendicular to the rolling of steel. To observe the fatiqued samples, we are creating mounts where we can obersve the grain boundaries under a microscope after etching the 304 stainless steel to see the grain boundaries. We are looking at the orientation, density, and spacing of the grain boundaries in both orientations.
