Abstract The development of a series of V--Nb alloys is described. The exploitation of this alloy system allows the design of high-strength, low-density compositions possessing good aqueous corrosion resistance in boiling, oxidizing, or reducing acids and sufficient oxidation resistance to allow their fabrication by conventional hot-working techniques in air. In the warm-worked condition, the spectrum of properties measured under inert atmosphere conditions (strain rate 0.005/sup -1/ sec) includes ultimate tensile strengths of 120,000 to 35,000 psi over the temperature range of 700 to 1000 deg C and stress-rupture properties at 700 deg C corresponding to 100-hr life at stresses in excess of 100,000 psi. Tensile strengths as high as 70,000 psi at 1000 deg C and 40,000 psi at 1200 deg C were observed at higher rates of loading in the warm-worked and stress-relieved conditions. (auth)
