Zirconium alloys are used in the nuclear industry as structural materials, and can be subject to high strain rate loading conditions during forming and in the case of a reactor accident. In this context, the relationship between strain rate dependent mechanical properties, crystallographic texture and deformation modes, such as slip and deformation twinning, are explored in this work. Commercially pure zirconium is deformed to 10 % engineering strain under quasi-static and high strain rate…
