148 Stainless Steel

Tensile properties for 316 stainless steel have been reported for the LENS [24] and for 316 for the directed light fabrication (DLF) process [29]. Table 14.1 provides the results. Note that the ultimate tensile yield strength reported for the LENS process is higher than typically observed for type 316 plate and far exceed the minimum expected values for bar. Ductility is excellent for the reported strength.
