Thesis Title: Hot deformation behavior of Zr-Nb alloy.

Supervisor: Dr. Vivek Pancholi and Dr. G. P. Chaudhari

Status: Awarded

Salient Features: Different Zr-Nb alloys are used to manufacture the pressure tubes for nuclear water reactors. To enhance mechanical properties of these material, microstructure has an important role. The variation in microstructure can be controlled by hot deformation. Therefore, the understanding of hot deformation behavior and dominant mechanism during hot deformation is highly required.

The work is based on hot deformation of different Zr-Nb alloys (i.e. Zr-1Nb, Zr-2.5Nb and Zr-2.5Nb-0.5Cu). The study of hot deformation is done using physical simulation of hot compression test at laboratory using Thermo-mechanical simulator-GLEEBLE 3800®. After hot compression test, flow stress data is used to identify the safe processing conditions and dominant deformation mechanism during hot deformation using different processing map approaches. The data related to identify safe processing conditions is transferred to Nuclear Fule Complex (NFC), Hyderabad to process the material at large scale at shop floor, and found appropriate during processing. The validation of dominant hot deformation mechanism, microstructural analysis is done. Moreover, among all approaches, an approach is identified, which has a much accurate prediction of safe processing conditions for Zr-Nb alloys.

As Zr-Nb alloys are two phase materials. To understand the role of individual phase in two phase region, rigorous microstructural analysis is done on samples, compressed at different deformation conditions. Moreover, dominating phase in two phase range is identified using different micro-structural characterization techniques such optical, SEM, EBSD, texture.

To understand the effect of constituent phases of two phase region on mechanical properties, small punch tests (SPT) were conducted on the samples deformed at various deformation conditions in two phase region, to obtain the mechanical property, i.e. yield load and maximum load. The obtained mechanical properties after SPT were discussed using micro-structural analysis such as shape and size of constituent phase, volume fraction, re-crystallization fraction and fiber direction.
