manufacturing systems. In this paper, we develop a simulation model to capture a ...

An experimental fracture map for uranium

ALW Collins, DMR Taplin - Journal of Materials Science, 1978 - Springer

Abstract A two-dimensional (Ashby) fracture mechanism map with normalized stress versus 
homologous temperature has been constructed for metallic uranium from published 
experimental data. Uranium exhibits many modes of fracture so that the map is of ...

Possible causes of embrittlement in 12% Cr steels used for fossilfired power stations

KR Piekarski, DMR Taplin - Materials Science and …, 1985 -

Abstract The effect of cooling rate on the embrittlement of a 12 wt-% Cr steel was 
investigated. It was found that when the cooling rate is not as fast as that produced by a 
liquid quench, the carbides have a tendency to segregate to the prior austenite grain ...
