stress graphitization
The solid-state @T06446@ of @N04193@ into @G02684@ by heat treatment combined with application of mechanical stress, resulting in a defined degree of @G02691@ being obtained at a lower temperature and/or after a shorter time of heat treatment than in the absence of applied stress.
Stress @G02691@ may also occur in volume elements of a carbon body in the process of heat treatment as a result of the action of internal residual or thermal stresses.
