Abstract

Young's moduli of hydrogenated Zr-Nb alloys were evaluated by using a multiple elastometer in the temperature range from room temperature to 773 K, based on the cantilever characteristic vibration technique. The decreasing rate of Young's modulus against the temperature was independent on the additive amount of Nb. The Young's modulus for the hydrogen solid solution of Zr-Nb alloys decreased and that those for the alloys with partially precipitated hydride slightly changed with increasing hydrogen content in both of Zr-1.0Nb and Zr-2.5Nb. The decreasing rates with hydrogen content of hydrogen solid solution of Zr-Nb alloys were almost same as that of Zr hydrogen solid solution. This result was considered because all specimens largely consisted of α-zirconium in which the solute hydrogen was found to decrease the Young's modulus.
