Abstract: A micro-tensile testing has been developed to investigate the adhesion behaviour of the oxide scale thermally grown on AISI 441 stainless steel sheet oxidised at 800 °C in different atmospheres - synthetic air and water vapour. In the test, a sample was placed in a tensile testing machine sitting in the chamber of a scanning electron microscope at room temperature. Evolution of the failure of the oxide scale was monitored in function of the imposed strain. It was found that the scale formed on steel oxidised i…
