Abstract

The effect of cold working and annealing for various times on the structure, the mechanical properties, and the fracture characteristics of an ultrafine-grained Zr–1 wt % Nb alloy after three-dimensional pressing is studied. Possible causes for increasing the thermal stability of the strength properties of the ultrafine-grained Zr–1 wt % Nb alloy during prerecrystallization annealing after additional cold working by rolling are discussed.
