The processes that proceed in hard alloys under the action of ionizing radiation were studied after cryogenic treatment. Acoustic emission due to the liberation of the energy stored in a lattice was shown to occur upon the irradiation of hard alloys. The nondestructive testing of hard alloys was shown to allow the prediction of the life and behavior of a drilling tool under different types of treatment.
