Title: MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF URANIUM PLATE

Abstract

Hot-rolled uranium plate exhibited a pronounced directionality in mechanical properties which was reduced but not eliminated by beta transformation. Results of tensile, bend, impact and hardness tests made at room temperature are summarized for both hotrolled and beta-transfomned uranium plate. Significant differences in mechanical properties existed between ten lots of uranium plate processed under similar conditions. Composition and processing data were inadequate to assign causes for the variations. (auth)
