Texture and Microstructure Development during Swaging and Annealing Process of Fabrication of Zircaloy-4 Rod Products

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study a systematic characterization of the microstructural and textural evolution in each thermo-mechanical processing step of Zircaloy-4 rod fabrication has been carried out. The possible micro-mechanisms leading to the observed microstructural evolutions have been discussed. The thermo-mechanical steps followed resulted in a completely recrystallized microstructure and retention of the hot-extruded texture in the finished product.
