MECHANICAL PROPERTY AND FORMABILITY STUDIES ON UNALLOYED PLUTONIUM

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The effect of temperature and testing speed on the tension and compression properties of unalloyed plutouium was studied in the alpha , beta , gamma , and delta phases. Compressive formability data were obtained for a load of 100,000 lbs in the aforementioned phases. In addition, preliminary creep, tension impact, and torsion data for alpha -phase plutonium are reported. Extrusion constants and pressures for the beta , gamma , and delta phases were obtained. The roomtemperature tension and compression properties of the beta - and #gg-extruded plutonium were determined. Metallo graphic studies were made to determine the effect of tension, ... continued below
