From tritium release experiments with stainless steel 316 carried out at several temperatures and tritium depth profiles of tritium-depleted specimen information on the transport of tritium by two diverse techniques was obtained. The results could be interpreted by a one dimensional diffusion model. The activation energy for the diffusion of tritium through stainless steel was found to be 61.3 kJ/mol.
