12Cr18Ni9Ti austenitic stainless steel (a material of the automatic control rod for WWR-K reactor active zone) irradiated to 5 dpa at 80°C and annealed at 450–950°C for 1 hr has been studied using TEM, magnetic properties and microhardness measurements. Evolution in fine structure of the irradiated steel resulting from heat treatment was identified (Frank loops and black dots) and it was compared to changes in magnetic properties. It was assumed that magnetism of austenitic steel is associated with Frank loops of certain size (15–20 nm) in which at a relatively low temperatures (≤300°С) and irradiation dozes (<20 dpa) the formation of ferromagnetic α-phase during ε→α-transformation may occur.

The results of studies on pitting corrosion of 12Cr18Ni10Ti stainless steel austenized after tensile testing at room and low (−20 and −60°C ) temperatures are given. It has been established that local corrosion resistance of cold-deformed stainless steel depends on strain and temperature which determine structure-phase state of material. It is shown that at low degrees of deformation dislocation substructure formed of quasi-homogeneous honeycomb type which has a stabilizing effect on the state of the steel, resulting in increase of resistance to corrosion. Large degree of plastic deformation (>30%) along with the formation processes of high fragmented inhomogeneous structure in 12Cr18Ni10Ti steel initiate phase transformation γ → α΄ to form α΄-martensite, which negatively affects the corrosion resistance of the material.
