Evidence for the existence of faulting in a splat-cooled δ-Pu (Ti) alloy
- 34 Downloads
Examination of X-ray diffraction profiles of a “splat-cooled” 15 Ti-85 Pu alloy has revealed that the material contains a large amount of twinning coupled with a reasonably small crystallite size and high strain. The localized strain is estimated to be 0.6%, the crystallite size ≅250 Å, and the twinning fault probability is large at 0.043.
