Materials for Superheated Fuel Sheaths: Relative Performance of Alloys in Superheated Steam Environments

Description: From abstract: "Study of radiation effects upon the tensile properties of the alloys, corrosion behavior in the absence and presence of stress, effect of prolonged, high temperature exposures upon structure sensitive properties of the alloys, and physical metallurgical changes as a function of exposure in a superheat environment.

Experimental Studies of Transient Effects in Fast Reactor Fuels

Description: An experimental program to evaluate the performance of FCR and EFCR fuel during transient operation is outlined, and the initial series of tests are described in some detail. Test results from five experiments in the TREAT reactor, using 1-in. OD SS-clad UO₂ fuel specimens, are compared with regard to fuel temperatures, mechanical integrity, and post-irradiation appearance. Incipient fuel pin failure limits for transients are identified with maximum fuel temperatures in the range of 7000 deg F. Multiple transient damage to the cladding is likely for transients above the melting point of the fuel.

Prediction of the Critical Heat Flux in Forced Convection Flow

Description: From summary: "A superposition model is developed to predict the critical heat flux in forced convection flow. The model is applied to available experimental results in boiling water flows and good agreement is obtained between the model and test data over the multitude of geometries, flow rates, pressures, and fluid enthalpies tested to-date."
