Abstract

Microstructures of V-Ti BCC alloys before and after hydrogenation/ dehydrogenation are investigated using transmission electron microscopy. Strain contrast with spacing smaller than 20 nm is observed both in the as-cast alloys and hydrogenated alloys. Twin boundaries and stacking faults with spacing of 5-20 nm are introduced into the V-Ti BCC alloys after hydrogenation. These are parallel to {1-1 1} planes of FCC hydrides. The twin boundaries and stacking faults are formed due to the accommodation of shear stress during hydrogenation accompanied by large anisotropic expansion along the c-axis direction in V-Ti BCC alloys. Density of twin boundaries is high in the alloys with small contents of V, which have a small effective hydrogen capacity at ambient condition. Dependence of microstructure evolution in the V-Ti alloys during hydrogenation on the V/Ti ratio is also discussed with the thermodynamic stabilities from measurements of Pressure-Composition isotherms and mechanical properties.
