Abstract: Severe peening is a well-accepted top-down approach to engender surface nanocrystallization in austenitic stainless steels. In the present study, AISI 316 grade austenitic stainless steel is subjected to severe peening through air blast shot peening technique. Study is aimed at analyzing the microstructural features of the peened layer and deformation induced martensite through transmission electron microscopy technique. Gradient nanostructured (GNS) layer formed as a result of high strain rate, multi-directional deformation during severe peening found to extend to about 500 ?m from the surface. Nucleation of deformation induced martensite is not limited to shear band intersections as affirmed by the published literature related to severe peening. It is observed to nucleate at multiple locations in the austenite matrix. Martensite units thus formed, coalesce with each other to form continuous layer of lath martensite layer at about 15 20 ?m from the surface. Upon further deformation, lath morphology transforms to dislocation cell-type; resulting in fine martensite crystallites at the topmost layer of the peened surface. 2018 Elsevier B.V.
