Effects of Grain Orientations on Nanoindentation Behavior in Hexagonal Zirconium

Abstract:

Article Preview

The present study deals with nanoindentation behavior of commercial Zircaloy 2 and high purity (5N purity) crystal bar Zirconium. The effect of crystal orientation was studied through high resolution electron diffraction, while a finite element model was developed to extract yield strength and strain hardening exponent from nanoindentation data. The study brings in clear signatures of orientation dependence of mechanical properties in hexagonal Zirconium.
