Conclusions are a Increase of the impurity content in beryllium raises the recrystallization temperature and decreases the tendency for grain growth by restraining the movement of grain boundaries. b At high levels of deformation, the distribution of oxide does not seem to be fundamentally different for the material originating from the different types of powder. c The layers of oxide effectively restrain the motion of grain boundaries to the point of making grain growth negligible but do not always constitute an insurmountable barrier for these boundaries. d In all cases, the conditions of fabrication play a fundamental role in the subsequent behavior of the metal, especially with respect to the mechanical properties.
