The hardness behaviour of pure Zr, Zircaloy 2, Zr-2.5Nb, Zr-2.5Nb-0.5Cu and Zr-1Nb-1Sn-0.1Fe alloys (composition in wt%) were evaluated from ambient temperature to 1173 K using a hot hardness tester in order to compare the hardness and to extract information on the strength behaviour from the hot hardness data using standard empirical relations. This paper summarizes the experimental hot hardness data of several Zr alloys and discusses the results with the help of their microstructure, alloy content and atomic radii of the constituents.
