Abstract

The results of studying the hydrogen permeability and physicomechanical properties of zirconium alloy irradiated with a pulse electron beam are presented. It is established that, with an increase in the beam energy, a surface layer of this material is hardened to depths of about 2.5 μμm. The depth distribution of Young's modulus values of zirconium alloy confirms the obtained results. The study of the hydrogen permeability of this material has shown that, after hydrogen charging of samples, the hydrogen concentration in a sample treated at an energy density of 18 J/cm2 is 2.5-3 times lower than that of the initial material charged with hydrogen.
