An oxide-dispersion-strengthened (ODS) nanostructured FeNiZr alloy wwas fabricated via high energy mechanical alloying and subsequently consolidated via the field assisted sintering technology (FAST). Input parameters of temperature, pressure, and current were varied in an effort to achieve full densification and optimize the mechanical performance following consolidation. As processing variations result in a wide range of material properties, tensile samples were generated and tested to accurately quantify the mechanical response of the material. Subsequently scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were performed to establish the relationship between processing, microstructure, and the resulting mechanical properties.
