Abstract : After heat treatment consisting of solution treatment at 1700 F and aging at 1000 F for 3 hours, high oxygen material displayed consistently good mechanical properties up to 500 F, the highest temperature investigated. After heat treatment consisting of solution treatment at 1650 F and aging at 900 F for 6 hours the high oxygen material displayed consistently good mechanical properties up to 650 F, the highest temperature investigated. The oxygen contents of the nominal and high materials were 0.13 and 0.19%, respectively, and their hydrogen contents were 0.0250 and 0.0094%, respectively. The consistently higher ductility of the high oxygen content material was chiefly attributed to its low hydrogen content. (Author)
