The tensile properties of electron-beam melted columbium and a series of columbium-nitrogen alloys containing up to 0.036w/o nitrogen have been examined at room temperature over a range of grain sizes.  The variation of lower yield stress σLY with grain-size d has been used to determine the values of σ0 + kd-1/2. Whereas k was not influenced by nitrogen content and was, with one exception, immeasurably small, σ0 was particularly sensitive to nitrogen content. Some dispersion-hardened structures (Cb2N as dispersed phase) were studied and, employing the Petch equation, a quantitative measure of the contribution of the dispersion to yield strength was made. A measure of the Peierls-Nabarro force for the columbium lattice at room temperature was obtained.
