Abstract : Tensile data on fine, anodized beryllium wire are presented. Tensile strength of the as-drawn wire was reported at about 179,000 psi and elongation fell in the range 1.0 to 2.1%. The tensile strength of the wire definitely shows a significant loss when compared with the value reported for as-drawn material. It is dif,icult not to attribute this loss to the anodizing treatment or possibly to some intermediate chemical treatment used in the anodizing process. Damage conceivably could come from stress corrosion and/or pitting. (Author)
