The Recrystallization Temperature of Beryllium
W. A. ALEXANDER; J. K. SwINTON; L. M. PmGEoN
IN THE course of a programme of research on beryllium in progress in these laboratories, knowledge of the recrystallization temperature became necessary. As the information is not available in the literature, the determination of this temperature for metallic beryllium was undertaken. By the reduction of grain size through working and recrystallization and the probable simultaneous induction of preferred orientation, it was hoped to improve the working properties of beryllium at lower temperatures.
