Title: Preparation, heat treatment, and mechanical properties of the uranium-5 weight percent chromium eutectic alloy

Abstract

The eutectic alloy of uranium-5 wt % chromium (U-5Cr) was prepared from high-purity materials and cast into 1-in.-thick ingots. This material was given several simple heat treatments, the mechanical properties of these heat-treated samples were determined; and the microstructure was examined. Some data on the melting point and transformation temperatures were obtained.
