Oxidation Characteristics of Two FeCrAl Alloys in Air and Steam from 800°C to 1300°C

Iron-chromium-aluminum (FeCrAl) alloys are being investigated as cladding material for urania nuclear fuel in light water power reactors. One extraordinary attribute of the FeCrAl alloys is their resistance to attack by air and steam up to their melting point. It was of interest to study the kinetics of oxidation of FeCrAl from 800°C to 1300°C in air and in steam to determine how...

Iron-chrome-aluminum alloy cladding for increasing safety in nuclear power plants

After a tsunami caused plant black out at Fukushima, followed by hydrogen explosions, the US Department of Energy partnered with fuel vendors to study safer alternatives to the current UO2-zirconium alloy system. This accident tolerant fuel alternative should better tolerate loss of cooling in the core for a considerably longer time while maintaining or improving the fuel...

Alloy Selection for Accident Tolerant Fuel Cladding in Commercial Light Water Reactors

As a consequence of the March 2011 events at the Fukushima site, the U.S. congress asked the Department of Energy (DOE) to concentrate efforts on the development of nuclear fuels with enhanced accident tolerance. The new fuels had to maintain or improve the performance of current UO2-zirconium alloy rods during normal operation conditions and tolerate the loss of active cooling...

Materials for the Nuclear Renaissance

The symposium “Materials for the Nuclear Renaissance” was held during the TMS 138th Annual meeting in San Francisco, California, February 15–19, 2009. Brian V. Cockeram, Bechtel Bettis, Inc., acted as co-chair for this symposium. Twenty-four presentations were made in the field of material behaviors for nuclear power plant applications, ranging from experiences and past...
