This document describes the guidelines for misorientation analysis to assess mechanical damage such as fatigue and creep induced by plastic and/or creep deformation for metallic materials by using electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique. This international standard defines misorientation parameters and specifies measurement conditions for such mechanical damage assessment. This document is recommended to evaluate mechanical damage of austenitic stainless steel, which is widely used for various components of power plants and other facilities.
In this document, the mechanical damage refers to the damage which causes the fracture of structural materials due to external overload, fatigue and creep; excepting the chemical and thermal damages themselves.
