Defect Sensitive Boundaries, Grain Boundary, Modeling, Percolation, Serial Sectioning, Stainless Steel
The study of three-dimensional percolation paths through materials is important in its contribution to understanding defect sensitive properties of materials. This work shows the importance of grain boundary character in modeling defect sensitive boundaries. Also presented are trends of percolation of sensitized grain boundaries in 304 stainless steel (304SS). Of particular interest is how open paths form in a three-dimensional model created through serial sectioning. Evidence is presented that triple or quadruple points that contain typically two boundaries with special character that intersect the percolation path break up the path. Some boundaries with no known special qualities; they are not CSL or low angle boundaries, resist corrosion.
