Super-austenitic and duplex stainless steels are advanced alloys used for demanding applications in the oil and gas, desalination and hydrometallurgical industries. To date, crack formation in Super-austenitic and gas pore formation in duplex stainless steels have a substantial negative impact on production output. The present research leveraged a unique combination of experimental and computational facilities to elucidate the underlying cause of these defects.
