Description

  • Content Description: Examination of clad uranium reflector slugs wbich falled by rupture and swelling during the first year of operation of Clementine revealed no anisotropic damage to the uranium because of burnup or thermal cycling. The cladding was found to be of high-sulfur-free-machining steel, and it is postulated that thermal stresses caused welding flaws to open enough to permit seepage and corrosive attack upon the uranium cores by the reactor coolant (mercury).
