RECENT PROGRESS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DUCTILE-PHASE TOUGHENED TUNGSTEN FOR PLASMA-FACING MATERIALS: W-Ni-Fe COMPOSITES
A promising approach to increasing fracture toughness and decreasing the DBTT of a W-alloy is by ductile-phase toughening (DPT) [1-3]. In this method, a ductile phase is included in a brittle matrix to prevent fracture propagation by crack bridging. W-Ni-Fe alloys consisting of nearly spherical W-particles embedded within a Fe-Ni-W ductile matrix are being manipulated by hot-rolling to create lamellar W/Fe-Ni-W composites with anisotropic fracture properties.
