In the present work, we have studied the strain rate sensitivity of tensile properties of TZM and Mo-5%Re alloys. Tests were performed at room temperature and around the transition temperature of each alloy, at strain rates varying over five decades. Ductility appeared insensitive to strain rate, whereas the strength is found to be strain rate dependent. Both proof stress and ultimate tensile strength are affected by strain rate and the Mo-5%Re alloy is more sensitive than TZM. As expected, the hardening decreases with temperature; in TZM alloy the strain rate sensitivity was apparent only at room temperature. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
