Survey of End Capping Methods for Zircaloy-2-Clad Uranium Fuel Elements

Description: From Abstract: "A literature survey was made of both welding and brazing methods that might be used to minimize the amount of exposed core material and provide the longest path for corrosion in the event of a defective weld in enextruded Zircaloy-2-clad uranium and uranium-2 w/o zirconium fuel elements."

The Effects of Chemical Impurities on the Quality of Rolled Uranium Rod

Description: Abstract: "Thirty-four uranium ingots containing controlled amounts of carbon, nitrogen, and Mgl2 slag were cast, rolled, and examined to investigate the relation between these impurities and the quality of the rolled rod. Carbon in concentrations up to 1400 ppm and nitrogen up to 170 ppm, either singly or in combination, had no significant effect on the number of defects observed in the rolled rod. The quality of the rods, however decreased with increasing amount of slag necessary to cause observable differences in the rod could not be detected on analysis, but was visible in the microstructure."
