Title: METHOD OF HEAT-TREATING URANIUM-SILICON ALLOYS

Abstract

A process is presented for manufacturing uranium alloys of a high degree of dimensional stability and free from thermal expansion. The process involves incorporating 0.01 to 0.1% by weight silicon into uranium, rolling the alloy obtained at a temperature below 660 deg C, beta-heating the alloy to a temperature of between 660 and 770 deg C and quenching the alloy.
