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 particular interest. The map also has general relevance for non-cubic polycrystalline materials.
