Survey of melt interactions with core retention material. [LMFBR]

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A survey of the interactions of up to 220 kg stainless steel melts at 1973/sup 0/K with the candidate core retention materials borax, firebrick, high alumina cement, and magnesia is described. Data collected for the interactions include rates of material erosion, aerosol generation, gas evolution, and upward heat flux. Borax acts as an ablative solid that rapidly quenches the melt. Firebrick is ablated by the steel melt at a rate of 8.2 x 10/sup -6/ m/s. High alumina cement is found to be an attractive melt retention material especially if it can be used in the unhydrated form. Magnesia is ... continued below

Magnesia is also found to be an attractive material though it can be eroded by the molten oxides of steel.
