Abstract:

A complete hardness survey of the zirconium-uranium system has been made at temperatures from room temperature to 900 C. The composition of maximum hardness increases from 40 at. zirconium at room temperature to 60 at. zirconium at 600 C. At 700 C, the hardness data indicated the presence of the beta uranium phase in alloys containing 95 and 100 at. uranium. This phase was found to be unusually hard. At 900 dec C, maximum hardness of the gamma zirconium-uranium solid solution was found to occur at about 50 at. .
