|Abstract:||Microstructural developments in deformed Zircaloy 2 were studied using techniques ranging from positron annihilation spectroscopy (PAS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD). Grain fragmentation during plastic deformation, which is expected to involve dislocation realignment and recovery, showed a clear correlation with drop in mean PAS lifetime (tau(m)). An increased tau(m), on the other hand, was associated with annihilation of deformation twins. The deformation twins, (1 0 (1) over bar 2)<(1) over bar 0 1 1 > type tensile twins, were identified from axis-angle relationship: 94.8 degrees ((1) over bar 2 (1) over bar 0). A deviation of more than 5 degrees from the exact twin orientation relationship was considered as annihilation. Such annihilation, caused by developments of in-grain misorientations, is expected to involve accommodation through interfacial dislocations. Presence of such dislocations, and associated point defects, offers an explanation for the observed increase in tau(m). (C) 2009|
