Recent grain boundary structure studies have shown that optimal distribution of a high frequency of coincidence site lattice boundaries and consequent discontinuity of random boundary network in the material is one of very effective methods to enhance the intergranular corrosion resistance. This advantageous property, one of important ones for structural material of nuclear reactor, can be obtained through simple thermomechanical treatment process without any change of original chemical composition. In this study, grain boundary character distribution(GBCD)-optimized Ni-based alloy (PE16) has been developed as a prospective high-performance nuclear reactor material by grain boundary engineering processing, and then tensile behavior of GBCD-optimized Ni-based alloy was investigated to evaluate the effects of grain boundary engineering processing on mechanical property. The results of tensile test at the temperature ranging from room temperature to 1073K showed that tensile strengths of the GBCD-optimized PE16 uniformly decreased with increasing test temperature. From these results, it was implied the possibility that the change in tensile properties would be attributed to an increment of dislocation structure.
