To explore the mechanism of damage-induced magnetization for paramagnetic austenitic stainless steel, the differences of damage-induced magnetizations between an austenitic stainless steel and a carbon steel are experimentally studied. Various plastic strains are introduced into the test-pieces of the austenitic stainless steel of 304 type and S185 carbon steel material. The residual plastic strains and the damage-induced magnetic fields nearby the test-pieces, the volume fraction of the damage-induced ferromagnetic martensitic phase in austenitic stainless steel test-pieces are measured. The relationships between the residual plastic strain and the damage-induced magnetic field of two materials are investigated and their differences are compared. In addition, by establishing the relationships of the damage-induced magnetic field with the damage-induced martensitic phase, the effect of the phase transformation on the damage-induced magnetization of austenitic stainless steel is analyzed.
