Abstract: The gaseous hydriding-induced evolutions of the microstructure, texture and mechanical properties of Zircaloy-4 processed by high-pressure torsion (HPT) were assessed. Much delta-ZrH(1.66) precipitation at 15 atm (21%) incurred significant hardening of vacuum-annealed HPT samples, and pure epsilon-ZrH(2) obtained at 20 atm showed a superior microhardness of 470 HV(0.3) and a low fracture toughness of 0.63 MPa m(1/2). The delta-hydrides presented strong (1 1 1) texture and followed the (0 0 0 1)(alpha-Zr)//{1 1 1}(delta-ZrH1.66) orientation relationship with the alpha-Zr matrix. During hydriding, alpha-Zr recrystallization texture was developed from the initial deformation texture. Copyright © 2012 Acta Materialia Inc.
