Formatted abstract
Trace additions of boron to cast zirconium result in significant microstructural changes similar to those observed with additions of boron to titanium alloys. These changes include the promotion of dendritic growth and a refinement in both the prior ß and a grain size. The refinement of the prior ß grain size is explained using a model of grain refinement in association with values calculated from the binary Zr–B phase diagram. It is proposed that the refinement of the a phase occurs through a combination of increased nucleation and altered diffusion mechanisms during cooling through the ß transus.
