Impact Bending Tests on Selected Refractory Materials
The possible use of tungsten alloys as structural materials in future fusion reactor divertors strongly depend on their ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT). The present paper gives an overview on different rod and plate materials fabricated by PLANSEE. It is demonstrated that DBTT is clearly improved compared to commercially available standard materials. Moreover, the significant impact of the microstructure on fracture mode and on toughness is discussed in detail.
