The present work describes the effect of intermediate hot rolling and annealing on the microstructure and texture development in U-10wt% Mo (U-10Mo) alloys. The as-cast U-10Mo foils were homogenized at 900°C for 48 hrs prior to hot rolling. The homogenized foils were hot rolled at 650°C with different reduction ratios. Single and multiple passes were made to determine the grain size and the recrystallization texture using optical, scanning electron microscopy and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). The results revealed shear banding in the deformed samples and dynamic recrystallization was also observed. Annealing the hot rolled samples above the eutectoid temperatures at 700°C resulted in static recrystallization, whereas sub-eutectoid annealing at 500°C resulted in recovery and eutectoid decomposition along the grain boundaries.
