  • An in-cell tensile testing system was developed to measure the mechanical properties of irradiated Zircaloy-2 cladding obtained from purposely defected and intact fuel rods from the Vallecitos Boiling Water Reactor core. Curved sections of the irradiated cladding were machined into longitudinai tensile specimens using a remotely operated high speed contour milling machine. Tensile tests were performed in-cell using a tensile tester with special grips to hold the curved test specimens. Zircaloy cladding specimens with hydrogen levels up to 640 ppm and having total elongations as low as 2.0% were successfully fabricated and tested in-cell with the equipment. It was possiblemore » to fabricate specimens of this brittle nature because the original curvature of the cladding was maintained during all phases of specimen preparation and testing. (auth)« less

  • A simple in-situ passive dissolved gas groundwater sampler, comprised of a short length of silicone tubing attached to a gastight or other syringe, was adapted and tested for in-situ collection of equilibrium gas samples. Sampler retrieval after several days of immersion in groundwater allowed the direct injection of the sample onto a gas chromatograph (GC), simplifying field collection and sample handling over the commonly used 'bubble stripping' method for H{sub 2} analyses. A GC was modified by sequencing a thermal conductivity (TC) detector followed by a reductive gas (RG) detector so that linear calibration of H{sub 2} over the rangemore » 0.2-200,000 ppmv was attained using a 0.5-mL gas sample; inclusion of the TC detector allowed the simultaneous quantification of other fixed gases (O{sub 2}, CO{sub 2}, He, and Ne) to which the RG detector was not responsive. Uptake kinetics for H{sub 2} and He indicated that the passive sampler reached equilibrium within 12 h of immersion in water. Field testing of these passive samplers revealed unusually large equilibrium gas-phase H{sub 2} concentrations in groundwater, ranging from 0.1 to 13.9%, by volume, in 11 monitoring wells surrounding four former radiological wastewater disposal ponds at the Y-12 plant in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.« less
