Examination of Uranium-2 w/o Zirconium Experimental Fuel Slugs Irradiated in EBR-I. Final Report-Program 6.1.11

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Six groups of U-2 wt% Zr fuel slugs were irradiated in the first core of the EBR-I to burnups of 0.080 to 0.189 at.% at calculated temperatures of 307 to 353 deg C. Two groups of cast specimens were found to be more dimensionally stable than four groups of wrought slugs. Of the wrought slungs, the as quenched group showed less tendency to grow than the three groups which had some annealing after quenching. Specimens at burnups of about 0.189 at.% and at 383 deg C showed the onset of swelling as indicated by density measurements. The hardnesses of these … continued below

The hardnesses of these specimens seemed but little affected by radiation, but there was an indication of softening with increasing irradiation temperature. (auth)
