Abstract

The thermoelectric power (TEP) characteristics of a Zr-1.15 wt.%Cr-0.10 wt%Fe alloy and its variations due to deformation and precipitation are studied and analysed. The alloying elements in solid solution decrease the TEP of zirconium by reducing the lattice component. An increase of the TEP value is always observed during subsequent aging process; this is essentially due to the decrease in the solute content of the remaining solid solution. The thermoelectric power measurements accompanied by x-ray line broadening analysis are used to characterize the substructure in cold-rolled sheet (from 5%-87.4%) of the Zr-Cr-Fe alloy and quenched Zr-Cr-Fe alloy, respectively.
