Recrystallization and Preferred Orientation of Beryllium by X-Ray Diffraction

THE manufacture of ductile beryllium is one of the most interesting problems confronting the metallurgist today, and one which becomes more acutely in need of resolution as the uses for beryllium increase. Beryllium belongs to the hexagonal group of metals along with zinc, magnesium, and cadmium. The melting point of the metal is about l,280°C.±5°C. Due to its brittleness, the metal's chief use is as an alloying agent in copper and iron.
