Recrystallization of Cold-Rolled Zr Single Crystals


Article Preview

Recrystallization of rolled Zr single crystals is considered in comparison with analogous recrystallization processes in rolled coarse-grained iodide Zr and polycrystalline plates of commercially pure Zr. Diffractometric X-ray methods were used by texture and X-ray line profile measurements. The treatment of obtained data included construction of correlation diagrams, connecting as-rolled and recrystallized conditions of samples. A number of recrystallization mechanisms, operating in rolled α-Zr under annealing, were revealed on the basis of found regularities of texture changes.
