Abstract : An investigation was made to study the deformation and fracture characteristics of high purity and alloyed beryllium in single crystal and polycrystalline form. Progress is reported in zone melting beryllium, the automating of a 1 in diameter zone melter, and the preparing of a polycrystalline beryllium-copper alloy is presented. In addition, a series of experiments designed to detect slip out of the basal plane is presented and interpreted.
