Özet

The bonding effect on the tensile properties, microhardness and radiation shielding has been studied. While bonding increased the hardness of the AISI 304 steel from 240 HV0.1, to the maximum value of 1 740 HV0.1, the elongation and the maximum stress clearly showed decreasing values. Bonded specimens were more capable at stopping the high-energy photons and bonding improved the radiation-shielding properties of the AISI 304 steel. From the obtained results, it has been concluded that the bonded AISI 304 stainless steel can be used as radiation shielding for gamma-rays.
