It is a great honor to present a talk in the symposium honoring Professor Carl Koch who has made many seminal contributions to our understanding of nanocrystalline materials. In this work, an elemental powder mixture with a nominal composition of Fe-14Cr-1Ti-0.3Mo-0.5La2O3 (wt.%) was mechanically alloyed for 0-20 h and subsequently consolidated using spark plasma sintering (SPS) under vacuum at 850-1050 oC for 7-45 min. The effect of process parameters on the densification behavior was investigated. The density of the specimens was measured via Archimedean principle, and mechanical properties via microhardness, shear punch and compression testing. Microstructural studies of the sintered specimens using TEM and EBSD revealed bimodal grain structure with a combination of nanocrystalline grains and ultrafine grains. In addition to Cr-rich particles, La-Ti-O based nanoclusters with high number density were noted to form. Mechanical properties of the developed alloys are discussed in terms of the operating strengthening mechanisms.
