Abstract : A vanadium alloy development program is being conducted for the purpose of producing improved short-time creep properties in the temperature range of 2200-2400F. At present, the composition V-40Cb-30Ta-1Ti represents the material having the best creep properties without sacrificing fabricability or coatability; on the basis of creep strain over a 2 hr period at 2200F, previously evaluated vanadium alloys. Work on the modification of this composition using a variety of approaches to produce a stable, high-strength particle dispersion is continuing. (Author)
