Abstract:

There is interest in studying the mechanical properties of refractory metals as functions of temperature, taking into account such factors as the admixtures content, structural state, and the deformation rate. In this report an attempt is made to generalize the available data on the effect of the temperature and the above-listed factors on the mechanical properties of refractory metals of the VA V, Nb, and Ta and VIA Cr, Mo, and W groups. A large portion of the experimental data used for this purpose was obtained on specially developed equipment permitting research to be carried out on extension in the -196 to 2600C temperature range and the rate of deformation to be varied in a wide range.
