Title: METHOD OF SUPPRESSING UAl$sub 4$ FORMATION IN U-Al ALLOYS

Abstract

A method is given for suppressing the formation of UAl/sub 4/ in uranium- - aluminum alloys, thereby rendering these alloys more easily workable. The method comprises incorporating in the base alloy a Group Four element selected from the group consisting of Si, Ti, Ge, Zr, and Sn, the addition preferably being within the range of 0.5to20at.%.
