Abstract : This report describes the behavior of uranium metal in notched-bar impact tests. The metal was tested over a range of temperatures from -100 F to 300 F. Its behavior was comparable with hot-rolled Monel or Inconel. No sharp-transition temperature was noted, and ductile fractures were obtained at all test temperatures.
