AS a result of the rather conflicting information available concerning the effect of stabilizing and stress relief heat treatment upon welded 18‐8 stainless steel, the Ryan Aeronautical Company Laboratory has recently concluded a series of investigations on this subject. These tests were designed to determine the particular benefits, if any, which might be imparted by these processes to 18‐8 type 321 and type 347 stainless steels for use on exhaust manifolds. Benefits which would be reflected in greater serviceability of the aircraft exhaust manifolds manufactured from this steel were of prime importance to this inquiry.
