Versatile Oxide Films Protect FeCrAl Alloys Under Normal Operation and Accident Conditions in Light Water Power Reactors

The US has currently a fleet of 99 nuclear power light water reactors which generate approximately 20% of the electricity consumed in the country. Near 90% of the reactors are at least 30 years old. There are incentives to make the existing reactors safer by using accident tolerant fuels (ATF). Compared to the standard UO2–zirconium-based system, ATF need to tolerate loss of...

Correction to: Development of Cold Spray Coatings for Accident-Tolerant Fuel Cladding in Light Water Reactors

This article was updated. The title was corrected to read Light Water Reactors.

Phase Reactions Between Refractory and High-Acidic Synthetic CaO-Ferronickel Slag

Interactions between high melting synthetic ferronickel slags with acidic character and MgO as refractory were investigated. In order to facilitate the complex composition of real ferronickel slag, a synthetic slag of SiO2-MgO-Fe2O3-CaO was used. The practical corrosion tests of the MgO refractory were performed in a hot-stage microscope at temperatures of 1650°C under a CO/CO2...

Using Laser Ultrasound to Detect Subsurface Defects in Metal Laser Powder Bed Fusion Components

Laser powder bed fusion offers many advantages over conventional manufacturing methods, such as the integration of multiple parts that can result in significant weight-savings. The increased design freedom that layer-wise manufacture allows has also been seen to enhance component performance at little or no added cost. For such benefits to be realized, however, the material...

Development of Creep-Resistant and Oxidation-Resistant Austenitic Stainless Steels for High Temperature Applications

Austenitic stainless steels are cost-effective materials for high-temperature applications if they have the oxidation and creep resistance to withstand prolonged exposure at such conditions. Since 1990, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has developed advanced austenitic stainless steels with creep resistance comparable to Ni-based superalloy 617 at 800–900°C based on specially...

Correction to: Laser Additive Manufacturing of Magnetic Materials

In the published version of this paper, there is an error in the indexing of the fcc diffraction pattern in Fig. 5c. The corrected figure is shown below.

Numerical and Experimental Study of Ti6Al4V Components Manufactured Using Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

Powder bed fusion additive manufacturing of titanium alloys is an interesting manufacturing route for many applications requiring high material strength combined with geometric complexity. Managing powder bed fusion challenges, including porosity, surface finish, distortions and residual stresses of as-built material, is the key to bringing the advantages of this process to...

A Comparative Study of Electrolyte Flow and Slime Particle Transport in a Newly Designed Copper Electrolytic Cell and a Laboratory-Scale Conventional Electrolytic Cell

An innovative copper electrolytic cell was designed with its inlet at the cell top and its outlet near the cell bottom, in opposite to conventional electrolytic cells. It was modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics to simulate copper electrorefining process. Unlike conventional electrorefining cells, downward electrolyte flows are more dominant in the fluid flow field in this cell, which...
