The preliminary study on rolling of uranium metal and some properties of the rolled uranium specimens are reported in this paper. The bomb reduced uranium, melted in vacuum high frequency furnace, are rolled at room temperature, 300° and 600°C. Microstructures and hardnesses of these rolled uranium specimens are shown. The thermal expansion coefficients of two specimens, cut from rolled uranium perpendicular and parallel to the rolling direction respectively, are measured by dilatometer… CONTINUE READING
