Title: METHOD OF PRODUCING SHAPED BODIES FROM POWDERED METALS

Abstract

A method is given for enclosing a body of uranium in a sheath of compacted beryllium or zirconium powder and comprises enveloping the body with uncompacted powder and pressing at a temperature above the beta - gamma transition point of uranium, thereby causing the uranium to flow and isotropically compress the powder.
