• Advanced Characterization of Hydrides in Zirconium 

      Shiman, Oksana
      Zirconium and its alloys are of great importance to the nuclear power industry due to their unique combination of mechanical properties, low neutron-capture cross-section, and sufficient corrosion resistance under reducing ...
    • Bulk Hydrides and Delayed Hydride Cracking in Zirconium Alloys 

      Tulk, Eric (2012-01-24)
      Zirconium alloys are susceptible to engineering problems associated with the uptake of hydrogen throughout their design lifetime in nuclear reactors. Understanding of hydrogen embrittlement associated with the precipitation ...
