|Abstract: ||The alpha-beta phase transformation behavior of Zr-2.5Nb (in mass%) has been characterized in real time during an in situ neutron diffraction experiment. The Zr-2.5Nb material in the current study consists, at room temperature, of alpha-Zr phase (hcp) and two beta phases (bcc), a Nb rich beta-Nb phase and retained, Zr rich, beta-Zr(Nb) phase. It is suggested that this is related to a quench off the equilibrium solubility of Nb atoms in the Zr bcc unit cells. Vegard's law combined with thermal expansion is applied to calculate the composition of the beta-phase, which is compared with the phase diagram, revealing the system's kinetic behavior for approaching equilibrium. © 2011, Wiley-Blackwell.
