Effect of alloy composition and helium ion-irradiation on the mechanical properties of tungsten, tungsten-tantalum and tungsten-rhenium for fusion power applications

Abstract:

Model alloys have been made of pure W and 1% and 5% W-Ta and W-Re. Indentation hardness and modulus data were obtained by nanoindentation to assess the effect of composition on mechanical properties. Results showed that both the Ta and Re compositions hardened with increasing alloy content, greater in the W-5%Ta composition which showed an increase of 1.03GPa (17%), compared to a 0.43GPa (7%) increase in W-5%Re. The samples also showed very small increases in modulus of ∼ 25GPa (6%) in both W...
