Abstract : Work directed toward development of a process to produce high-strength beryllium fine wire is described. Material selection and known chemistry is listed along with the extrusion data of these alloys. The beryllium-iron alloys, 1.2 to 0.8% Fe were found not adaptable for the fabrication technique described and will be replaced with an alloy having 0.4% Fe. Future plans include conversion of the extruded stock to wire by conventional warm-drawing techniques. (Author)
