Irradiation experiments were carried out on 14 different vanadium-base alloys. After irradiation (1.4 × 1021 neutrons/cm2 > 100 kev) the specimens were tested in a tension test between room temperature and 750 C.
In the binary vanadium-titanium alloys the increase in yield strength at room temperature is independent of the titanium content. The temperature at which a complete recovery from radiation damage can be observed is influenced by the titanium content.
At 650 and 750 C none of the vanadium alloys showed signs of radiation-induced, high-temperature embrittlement.
