    Abstract

    Although zirconium and titanium are hexagonal close-packed metals, the deformation mechanism is quite different in these metals from that in other hexagonal close-packed metals such as beryllium, zinc, and cadmium. Slip in zirconium and titanium occurs predominantly on prismatic (100) planes with possibly some slip on pyramidal (101) planes. Basal plane slip which predominates in the other hexagonal close-packed metals mentioned is observed rarely if at all in zirconium (1).
