Title: PREFERRED ORIENTATION IN ROLLED AND IN RECRYSTALLIZED HIGH-PURITY URANIUM ROD. Final Report of Metallurgy Program.4.1.17

Abstract

The preferred orientation of a relatively small piece of high-purity uranium rod, rolled to an 85% reduction at 300 deg C, has been determined in the as-rolled and in the recrystallized conditions. The 12 different charts obtained indicated that the as-rolled texture could be described as a duplex (041) and (352) with the (041) being the major component and with considerable spread about each component. The recrystallized rod showed approximate (041) and (392) components with considerable spread. These texture components for both the as- rolled and the recrystallized rods are not too different from those previously reported for reactor-grade uranium rod. However, it was noted that the texture appeared to be quite sharp for the reduction used, and the maximum intensity on an inverse pole figure was considerably displaced from the periphery of an (001) standard projection for both the rolled and recrystallized rods.
