  • Content Description: The properties of zirconium alloyed with aluminum tin, and molybdenum were investigated. Using reactorgrade zirconium sponge, 11 zirconium-base alloys were double arc-melted and cast into 6-in.-diam. ingots weighing 35 lb each. By such standard hot working procedures as extruding and rolling, the ingots were converted to 1/8-in.-thick strips. The extruded and rolled products were used for a variety of evaluation studies which included corrosion thermal conductivity, tensile, and creep tests. The alloys demonstrated short-time elevated temperature strength properties equal to or greater than type-304 stainless steel. Their corrosion resistance in sodium, at 1000 deg F, compares favorable with that of unalloyed zirconium. The creep resistance and the thermal conductivity were found to be less than those for type-304 stainless steel, but adequate for nuclear reactor application. (auth)
