  • Single crystal specimens of YZn (B2) were tested in tension at room temperature. Specimens with a [1 0 1] tensile axis orientation exhibited {r_brace}0 1 1{l_brace} <100> primary slip and an ultimate tensile strength of 365MPa at 3.7% elongation. Specimens with [0 0 1] and [1 1 1] tensile axis orientations showed no slip lines and fractured at a stress of 180MPa at 3.3% and 130MPa at 2.9% elongation, respectively. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) examination of the Burger's vector of dislocations in tensile tested specimens revealed <1 0 0>-type dislocations. TEM analysis suggested that a secondary slip system, {l_brace}0 0more » 1{r_brace}<1 0 0>, may be active. Banded features with a {l_brace}0 2 1{r_brace} orientation were observed in deformed YZn; these may be slip traces produced by the cross-slip of <1 0 0> dislocations. Acting together, {l_brace}0 1 1{r_brace} <1 0 0> and {l_brace}0 0 1{r_brace} <1 0 0> slip provide only three independent slip systems, and no extra independent systems are provided by the cross-slip. This finding is consistent with the low ductility of YZn.« less
  • This paper reports on the D0{sub 22} crystallographic structure of Al{sub 3}Ti intermetallic compound transformed into the L1{sub 2} structure by alloying with Ni,Cu,Zn and Fe. These modified intermetallics are very attractive as potential high-temperature structural materials. Since they have similar Al content as Al{sub 3}Ti they are expected to exhibit an excellent oxidation resistance. Also, their densities are relatively low ({lt}4.5 g/cm{sup 3}) and it has recently been reported that the L1{sub 2} Al{sub 22}Fe{sub 3}Ti{sub 8} and Al{sub 5}CuTi{sub 2} (both modified Al{sub 3}Ti) intermetallics exhibit a positive temperature dependence of yield strength (0.2% offset) in compression. Themore » L1{sub 2} crystallographic structure of the transformed Al{sub 3}Ti-based compounds has five independent slip systems sufficient for a generalized plastic flow according to von Mises criterion. However, contrary to expectation the transformed L1{sub 2} intermetallics are still brittle and at room temperature fracture occurs by transgranular cleavage.« less
  • DyCu and YCu are representatives of the family of CsCl-type B2 rare earth intermetallic compounds that exhibit high room temperature ductility. Structure, orientation relationship, and morphology of the martensites in the equiatomic compounds DyCu and YCu are examined using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). TEM studies show that the martensite structures in DyCu and YCu alloys are virtually identical. The martensite is of orthorhombic CrB-type B33 structure with lattice parameters a = 0.38 nm, b = 1.22 nm, and c = 0.40 nm. (021¯) twins were observed in the B33 DyCu and YCu martensites. The orientation relationship of B33 and B2more » phases is (111¯)[112]B33 || (110)[001]B2. The simulated electron diffraction patterns of the B33 phase are consistent with those of experimental observations. TEM investigations also reveal that a dominant orthorhombic FeB-type B27 martensite with lattice parameters a = 0.71 nm, b = 0.45 nm, and c = 0.54 nm exists in YCu alloy. (11¯ 1) twins were observed in the B27 YCu martensite. As a result, the formation mechanism of B2 to B33 and B2 to B27 phase transformation is discussed.« less
