Technical feasibility of using uranium oxide fuels at Hanford

Description: The use of uranium oxide fuel and the dispensing with metallic fuel elements in the Hanford production reactors have been contemplated in the past but have not been examined in any detail. This report reviews the technical feasibility of using oxide fuel and discusses the reactor limitations and changes in plutonium and isotope production. These results are based on preliminary calculations and a research and development program would be required to establish the validity of the calculated valu… more

Tungsten Cladding of Tungsten-Uranium Dioxide (W-UO2) Composites by Deposition from Tungsten Hexafluoride (WF6)

Description: A program is being conducted to develop a process for cladding tungsten and tungsten cermet fuels with tungsten deposited from the vapor state by the hydrogen reduction of tungsten hexafluoride. Early work was performed using recrystallized, high purity, commercial tungsten as the substrate material. Temperatures in the range 660 to 12950F (350 to 1700°C) and pressures from 10 to 350 mm Hg were investigated. Hydrogen to WF 6 ratios of 10: 1 to 150: 1 were utilized. Efforts were directed toward… more
