Shear strength at 75 F to 500 F of fourteen adhesives used to bond a glass-fabric-reinforced phenolic resin laminate to steel

Description: Fourteen adhesives used to bond a glass-fabric-reinforced phenolic resin laminate to steel were tested in order to determine their shear strengths at temperatures from 75 F to 500 F. Fabrication methods were varied to evaluate the effect of placing cloth between the facing surfaces to maintain a uniform bond-line thickness. One glass-fabric supported phenolic adhesive was found to have a shear strength of 3,400 psi at 300 F and over 1,000 psi at 500 F. Strength and fabrication data are tabulated for all adhesives tested.

A metallurgical investigation of a contour-forged disc of EME alloy

Description: Report presenting a study of the properties of EME alloy in the form of contour-forged discs for the rotors of gas turbines. The investigation was undertaken because the properties of promising alloys are dependent to a considerable extent on the conditions of fabrication and the size and shape of the rotor discs introduced fabrication procedures for which information was not available. Results regarding hardness surveys, short-time tensile properties, rupture test characteristics, time-deformation characteristics, creep strengths, stability characteristics, and data from tests in other laboratories are provided.

Integrated Recycling Test Fuel Fabrication

Description: The Integrated Recycling Test is a collaborative irradiation test that will electrochemically recycle used light water reactor fuel into metallic fuel feedstock. The feedstock will be fabricated into a metallic fast reactor type fuel that will be irradiation tested in a drop in capsule test in the Advanced Test Reactor on the Idaho National Laboratory site. This paper will summarize the fuel fabrication activities and design efforts. Casting development will include developing a casting process and system. The closure welding system will be based on the gas tungsten arc burst welding process. The settler/bonder system has been designed to be a simple system which provides heating and controllable impact energy to ensure wetting between the fuel and cladding. The final major pieces of equipment to be designed are the weld and sodium bond inspection system. Both x-radiography and ultrasonic inspection techniques have been examine experimentally and found to be feasible, however the final remote system has not been designed. Conceptual designs for radiography and an ultrasonic system have been made.

Metallic Fuel Casting Development and Parameter Optimization Simulations

Description: One of the advantages of metallic fuel is the abilility to cast the fuel slugs to near net shape with little additional processing. However, the high aspect ratio of the fuel is not ideal for casting. EBR-II fuel was cast using counter gravity injection casting (CGIC) but, concerns have been raised concerning the feasibility of this process for americium bearing alloys. The Fuel Cycle Research and Development program has begun developing gravity casting techniques suitable for fuel production. Compared to CGIC gravity casting does not require a large heel that then is recycled, does not require application of a vacuum during melting, and is conducive to re-usable molds. Development has included fabrication of two separate benchscale, approximately 300 grams, systems. To shorten development time computer simulations have been used to ensure mold and crucible designs are feasible and to identify which fluid properties most affect casting behavior and therefore require more characterization.

Recent developments in metallic hydride shielding materials

Description: Declassified 21 Sep 1973. A wide range of metallic hydrides (to NH 9.0), each containing additives to tailor the nuclear characteristics, have been fabricated successfully. Specific additives have included B compounds and high Z- material compounds, e.g., W, Hf, Th. Hydrided Ti which contains B compounds has proven relatively easy to fabricate and has shown excellent radiation stability. Post-irradiation appearance (through 6 x 10/sup 20/ nvt thermal) shows no visible changes. Strengths to 150,000 psi at 380 deg C (with ductile failure) have been observed for TiH. Sound, massive N/sub H/ 6.9 hydrided Zr rods have been fabricated in hydride-furnace batches as large as 50 kg, with 100% yield. A 50 Th-50 Zr hydride of N/sub H/ 6.7 and higher has been fabricated. The basic structure, apparently ThZr/sub 2/H/sub 8/, is a cubic spinel-type structure and is the first reported hydride having this structure. This material, when containing a B compound additive, will probably provide more gamma shielding than is generally needed, but the material has interesting possibilities as a combination breeder-blanket-shield. It now appears that almost any combination of looked-for nuclear properties can be incorporated into a metallic hydride composite having useful engineering characteristics. (16 tables, 23 figs) (DLC)

SPS Fabrication of Tungsten-Rhenium Alloys in Support of NTR Fuels Development

Description: Abstract. Tungsten metal slugs were fabricated via Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) of powdered metals at temperatures ranging from 1575 K to 1975 K and hold times of 5 minutes to 30 minutes, using powders with an average diameter of 7.8 ?m. Sintered tungsten specimens were found to have relative densities ranging from 83 % to 94 % of the theoretical density for tungsten. Consolidated specimens were also tested for their Vickers Hardness Number (VHN), which was fitted as a function of relative density; the fully consolidated VHN was extrapolated to be 381.45 kg/mm2. Concurrently, tungsten and rhenium powders with average respective diameters of 0.5 ?m and 13.3 ?m were pre-processed either by High-Energy-Ball-Milling (HEBM) or by homogeneous mixing to yield W-25at.%Re mixtures. The powder batches were sintered at temperatures of 1975 K and 2175 K for hold times ranging from 0 minutes to 60 minutes yielding relative densities ranging from 94% to 97%. The combination of HEBM and sintering showed a significant decrease in the inter-metallic phases compared to that of the homogenous mixing and sintering.

MOX Fabrication Isolation Considerations

Description: This document provides a technical position on the preferred level of isolation to fabricate demonstration quantities of mixed oxide transmutation fuels. The Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative should design and construct automated glovebox fabrication lines for this purpose. This level of isolation adequately protects the health and safety of workers and the general public for all mixed oxide (and other transmutation fuel) manufacturing efforts while retaining flexibility, allowing parallel development and setup, and minimizing capital expense. The basis regulations, issues, and advantages/disadvantages of five potential forms of isolation are summarized here as justification for selection of the preferred technical position.
