Sheet of type 304 austenitic stainless steel are used as the first wall (membrane) of LNG storage tanks. Since cyclic stress and strain are caused by the change in gas and liquid pressure due to variation of the liquid surface level, the low-cycle fatigue is an important problem for design. The effect of the deformation-induced martensitic transformation on strain-controlled low-cycle fatigue behavior in type 304 stainless steel at room temperature has been studied. The fatigue behavior in type 310 has been examined for comparison.
