Texture Evolution and Variant Selection in Zr-2.5Nb During the α-β Phase Transformation
Zr-2.5Nb is used as the pressure tube material for 2nd and 3rd generation CANDU reactors. The physical properties of pressure tubes in service, including strength, dimensional stability, and delayed hydride cracking ...
The Inhomogeneous Microstructure and Deformation of Similar and Dissimilar Al-Zn Containing Mg Friction Stir Welds
The magnesium-based aluminum-zinc alloys have excellent stiffness to weight ratios, and may be combined by friction stir welding to expand the possible applications. The high aluminum alloy AZ80 in particular has the ...
Effect of Texture on Anisotropic Thermal Creep of Pressurized Zr-2.5Nb Tubes
Zr-2.5Nb is used as pressure-tube material in CANDU (CANada Deuterium Uranium) reactors. Under reactor operating conditions, pressure tubes undergo anisotropic dimensional changes, and thermal creep contributes to this ...
