The morphology and the substructure characterizing the martensite produced on beta quenching a Zr-1.9 wt % Cr alloy have been examined by optical and transmission electron microscopy. The structural changes that occur in the martensite structure on tempering at various temperatures in the α+ZrCr2 phase field have also been investigated.
