Rhenium reportedly has the highest work hardening coefficient of any metal.Uniaxial tensile testing is used to compare the work hardening behavior of annealed commercial-purity rhenium sheet with the work hardening behavior of stainless steel, brass, and aluminum. Two analytical methods are used for the comparison: (1) the traditional Holloman analysis and (2) the differential Crussard-Jaoul analysis with a Ludwik power relationship. These results show that the tensile behavior of rhenium follows a work hardening trend similar to that of other metals and that the work hardening coefficient changes as strain accumulates.
