Title: Completion of the Irradiation of Silicon Carbide Cladding Tube Specimens in the High Flux Isotope Reactor

Abstract

This document outlines the irradiation of silicon carbide cladding tube specimens in the High Flux Isotope Reactor at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The cladding tube specimens consisted of monolithic, composite, and coated SiC specimens in order to test the effect of these various materials on the overall cladding performance during irradiation. A total of 18 specimens were irradiated for one cycle, with 9 specimens irradiated at low heat flux conditions and 9 specimens at high heat flux conditions. The specimens were inserted in cycle 475 in September 2017 and reached an average irradiation dose of approximately 2.6 dpa.
