Lattice Strain and Texture Evolution During Room-Temperature Deformation in Zircaloy-2
Zircaloy-2 and its sister alloy, Zircaloy-4, have extensive applications in the nuclear industry as core components in heavy water reactors and fuel cladding in both heavy and light water reactors. Intergranular stresses ...
Evolution of Interphase and Intergranular Strain in Zr-Nb Alloys During Deformation at Room Temperature
Zr-2.5Nb is currently used for pressure tubes in the CANDU (CANada Deuterium Uranium) reactor. A complete understanding of the deformation mechanism of Zr-2.5Nb is important if we are to accurately predict the in-reactor ...
The Microstructures of Zr-Excel Alloy: Effects of Heavy Ion Irradiation, Plastic Deformation, Thermal Treatment and In-Situ Heating
Zr-Excel alloy (Zr-3.5Sn-0.8Nb-0.8Mo) is a dual phase (α + β) alloy in the as-received pressure tube condition. It has been proposed to be the pressure tube candidate material for the Generation-IV CANDU-Supercritical Water ...
Lattice Strain Development in Inconel-690 under Bi-axial Compression and Tension
Nuclear reactor steam generator tubes, manufactured from Nickel alloys such as Inconel 690 (INC690), are potentially susceptible to failure by Stress Corrosion Cracking where crack initiation may be exacerbated by internal ...
Lattice Strain Response of Zr-2 During Biaxial Deformation
Pseudo-plane strain compression tests are carried out on rolled plate Zircaloy-2 using different combinations of loaded and constrained sample directions relative to the plate principal directions. Lattice strains are ...
