Stacking fault energy

  1. Oct 19, 2014 #1
    Dear everyone,
    Can anyone explain how variation of Stacking Fault Energy(SFE) for different Face Centered Cubic(FCC) materials affect the stain hardening rate? For example SFE of aluminium is 250 mJ/m^2 and that of stainless steel is 9 mJ/m^2. Can you please explain which material has higher strain hardening coefficient and the reason behind it?

    Thanks in advance
