Abstract

The paper summarizes the current status of the investigation into the thermo- mechanical behaviour of chromium and chromium alloys which were performed in the framework of the European Fusion Programme. The studies focused on pure chromium and the alloy Cr 5Fe 1Y(2)O(3) both produced in a special sintering process. Results for thermal properties in the range of room temperature up to 1000 degrees Celsius are presented. The mechanical properties are compiled and in. the case of the alloy Cr 5Fe 1 Y 20J they prove to be advantageous especially in the temperature range above 500 degrees Celsius where this alloy maintains a rather high strength and creep stability up to about 900 degrees Celsius.
